OFFSET There is no guidebook on how to survive the agonising hurricane of pain when you find your most intimate self betrayed. Trapped between walls of pain, you try to fight your way out. How much of the pain do you need in order to survive, what time do you get to test the truth of your expectations and how much do you let yourself be told of what is right? In fight for breath, love balances us sharply on hopes blade.
It is with great joy that I can announce that my newest film Undercurrent is accepted into the London Short Film Festival 2018!
The festival runs from 12th – 21st of January 2018.
Undercurrent We find ourselves uncomfortably close with a dancer on screen. Are we allowed to possess her? She is oblivious to her spectators until the momentum changes and she becomes aware that she is no longer alone. On the verge of losing possession of her body she takes control, turning her attention to the camera and the audience behind it. Encroaching on them, like a predator stalking its prey.
ONES is a collaboration between Dutch visual artist Anne Verheij and Japanese choreographer Miku Tsuchiya, in which film and dance are explored across the former pedestrian tunnels of Elephant & Castle, London. Juxtaposing two dance films created from the same footage, ONES captures the individual’s rhythm beating amidst the pulse of the restless city.
ONES – 2 women, 2 countries, 2 disciplines – 1 film
The Outlet Dance Project is committed to providing artists who identify or have identified as women an opportunity to share their artistic vision through site-specific dance, film, and work created for the stage. In partnership with Grounds For Sculpture – an internationally renowned contemporary sculpture park – collaboration, community building, and interdisciplinary experimentation are an integral part of the festival. The Outlet is dedicated to supporting all traditional and nontraditional dance forms. The festival celebrates the intersections of visual and moving arts, exploring relationships between sculpture and dance, between place and movement.
