Home: an improvised Dance Film
A few weeks ago, I went to film the dancers at the Southwest Dance Hub, to explore various ways for the dancers to interact with the camera, and for us film makers to practise movement and framing with the dancers... The line between us was blurred, as we all joined in movement exercises (totally out of my usual comfort zone!) and the dancers filmed each other as well...
This was one of our first experiments, totally improvised on a grey and sombre day when most of the dancers were absent due to illness. I went home and played around with layering what we'd filmed and managed to make myself cry while doing it, so I reckon it's worth sharing here...
What a brilliant opportunity to be inspired and learn together! Thank you to these beautiful, talented and endlessly expressive dancers, Winnie Guy and Ruth Bell, and thanks to Laura Denning for additional footage.
