Circus Me (A Round) (with Linda Austin)


This collaboration with choreographer and dancer Linda Austin used the camera to extract and reconfigure a solo from her larger project Circus Me Around.  By filming three different renditions of the dance from three different heights (at foot, torso and head level), the body was fragmented into separate parts and projected throughout the space.  The solo becomes “a round” as the three performances (with their rustling, footfalls and bits of speech and song) move in and out of sync.  Props, set elements and lights created a tableau in the space, suggesting and reflecting various moments from the dance.
