April 15 – Opening Night – 6:45-8pm – at Movie Garden

Flesh and Stone – Olya Glotka – Canada – 4:53
Raw and intimate relationship. Is it fight or play? Is it an internal struggle or artful conscious? Is it a question of belonging or fitting in? Is it just about them or about every one of us?

Bele Beltza – Andrea Hackl, Raffaele Schiavo, Vero Mota – Austria/Netherlands – 8:33
A dreamy fairytale taking you into the high mountains, leading through a soul landscape. It’s a meditation on lightness, birth and death. Inspired by the wisdom of the raven, it’s an ode to the freedom of our spirit and the power of our soul. Shot entirely on a 2.5 months long solo trekking journey in the high mountains of Europe.

After the Reign: Confusion – Jennifer Tarrazi-Scully – USA – 1:45
A dance film interpretation of a woman experiencing the confusing and schizophrenic nature of loss. Confronting many versions of herself and the beginning of the healing process.

The Man Who Traveled Nowhere In Time – Vincent René-Lortie – Canada – 5:04
Through the eyes of Eytan, a man who only exists in the dreams and unconscious minds of others, we question what is “real”, what isn’t, and how we each perceive time differently.

Naked Came I – Peter Sparling – USA – 4:20
A childhood nightmare reanimated 60 years later evokes the terrifying tension within a nine-year-old’s psyche between innocence and violence, vulnerability and power, feminine and masculine energies.

Alta – Antti Ahokoivu – Finland – 3:42
Organic elements in a concrete world.

Kaddume – Álvaro José Peña, Sergio López Guevara, Rodrigo García, Roberto Ávila – Colombia – 3:32
“Kaddume” is an expedition that recognizes San Basilio de Palenque’s past and future relationships. It’s a look to and from the body, the land they live in and the voice of their female ancestors. The same ones that opened new paths in search of freedom. This dance is a new approach through rhythm and movement, to that strength and wisdom. It is an homage of these girls, not professional dancers, to that empowered walk of freedom that still lives in their bodies.

SEBASTIENNE – José Alberto Andrés Lacasta – Spain – 13:37
The arrival of a mysterious engraving about Martyrdom of Saint Sebastian at the Historic Palace of the Aljafería (Zaragoza) awakens the spirit of its old inquisitors, reviving the invincible designs of guilt and desire.

Nine Lives – Reece Schietinger – USA – 4:10
My vision of original music by Eric Long.

Dissipate – Penny Chivas, Paul Michael Henry – UK – 4:33
Two people meet on a platform attempting to rewrite their pasts. Are they here now or have they been here before? Have we already danced these steps? As memory clouds they stumble and jump between movements forgetful of the details that once held everything together. Nothing left but a hazy memory dissipating in the breeze.

Tell me your secrets – Junichi Kagami – Japan – 1:40
Masks and dance are often treated as a complement to costumes in fashion. However, it is not a complement to costumes, but fashion uses hair makeup and masks, dance and music to stimulates human mind. We have hidden faces, dance music, and a dance, I want to express the secret of the designers in fashion. Elements that evolve fashion. Is not it not only costumes and bags but people?

We are all on the same bus – Nuno Serrão – Portugal – 2:00
If we consider Einstein’s space-time concept, we end up with an object where everything that happened and everything that will happen, is understood inside. Through it, we are driven by a vehicle, let’s call a bus, completely autonomous, that goes in a single direction, to the front, and has a single window, the rear. This vehicle, astronomer Arthur Eddington called The Arrow of Time. This idea, although depressingly deterministic, is difficult to ignore in view of the already proven plasticity of time, even when we consider Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle, where the act of observing something, alters its result. A concept that does not invalidate a deterministic Universe, rather, allows the Interpretation of Many Worlds by Hugh Everett, also known as Multiverse.

PungJeong.Gak (風精.刻) A Town with a Blue Hill – Joowon Song – Republic of Korea – 15:27
Hongseok from Taejinsa textile factory and Youngsun from Sunhong supermarket spend their day roaming about in the neighbourhood. From Taejinsa, past the barber shop and textile factory to the 600-year-old maidenhair tree, they hop over empty houses on the hill that have been inhabited at one point. All the places in this neighbourhood are their playground and life’s temporal-space at the same time, ranging from the corner from which trains can be seen, the intersection between the hanok area, Western-style house area, the apartment complex, and the stairway where dead bodies were stacked during the Korean War, to the clothes line on Youngsun’s rooftop. In their journey on Cheongpa Hill, a neighbourhood sentenced to death in the name of urban redevelopment, Youngsun, Hongseok, and traces of life glimmer. Drawing from poet Choi Seung-ja’s “Do You Remember” Cheongpa-dong, Youngsun and Hongseok sing in bodily gestures to the city light down the hill. “And now, like worn-out shoes without an owner / When I wander aimlessly in the field / Do you remember Cheongpa- dong // The winter from a few centuries ago / When we lay ourselves on top of each other like flower petals / Drifting away in the snow-clad dream” – excerpt from “Do you Remember” Cheongpa-dong (1981)

April 16 – Second Night – 6:45-8pm – at Movie Garden

Whim – Chelsy Mitchell – USA – 2:40
What is it for the mind to be housed in a body? As we go from day to night, Shaq allows his mental state to become physical.

Tales from the Loop – Isabel Ball – USA – 2:00
it is better to be lost and free, than to be caged and conflicted inside

Nadie – Roberto Martínez – France/Spain – 2:55
“Nobody knows me. Not my psychiatrist. Not even the shower head. Not my cup of coffee. Not my eyelashes. Nobody knows anything about me. No one has discovered me yet. Nothing enters my body. Everything crosses it. Nobody knows me.” Niño de Elche

Terrain – Daniel Gwirtzman – USA – 11:45
Terrain, filmed in the desert region of Murcia, southern Spain, depicts a body in a vast mountainous landscape. What story can a body in this space provoke? How does a body surrender to natural forces: the unforgiving contours of a jagged terrain, an inhospitable climate, and the relentless teasing of insects? When is movement authentic, when is it artificial? How does the acquisition of learned behavior and dance technique influence habits, choices, and realities? The film explores these questions, highlighting the contradictions between the natural and the man-made.

Lucy – Ioanna Tsinividi – Greece – 6:26
Elegant and melancholic Lucy is in her chateau, wandering about in her bedroom. Lucy fetches a box hidden underneath her bed and opens it. Lucy stands in front of the mirror and holds an evening gown against her body. Lucy takes off her long white dress…

Out of Ruin – Marta Renzi – USA – 15:00
The work shares a visually rich and kinetic allegory of individual clans in isolation who journey to discover their paths to a place of unity.

OI! – Yasmin Mello – Ireland – 10:34
A Brazilian couple struggle with accommodation in Dublin during a housing crisis as a villainous landlord attempts to swindle them in this innovative and creative videodance piece.

Dante Sonata – Margaret Williams – UK – 18:00
A dance and piano collaboration exploring the the emotions of Dante’s epic journey to the three parts of the afterlife – Inferno, Purgatorio and Paradiso accompanied by a virtuoso performance of Liszt’s Dante Sonata.

Have a Nice Day – Susan Toni – USA – 2:49
Two uncompromising women struggle to see eye-to-eye while sizing each other up, wondering whether they should even like each other.

Axis Mundi – Patrick Foch – France – 2:00
Two bodies merge and evolve precisely between earth and sky, in a quest for physical and spiritual elevation along this invisible thread.

April 17 – Third Night – 6:45-8pm – at Movie Garden

Picnic – Wendy Rein, Ryan T. Smith – USA – 3:57
“Picnic” takes place within a surreal, grassy bubble, echoing the experience of its creators while sheltering in place in New York’s Hudson Valley. Scenes that gleam on the surface, but where a beautiful field of poppies or a shiny red apple could pose a threat.

Kŏnˈvoiˌ- Claudia Hill – Germany – 9:23
(The act of accompanying or escorting, especially for protective purposes.) A group of travellers of unknown origin arrive out of nowhere into an open landscape. Over the course of a day, they explore and scan the environment with their unique handmade triangular antennae. Through their sensual decoding of information and hypnotic choreography of sign language, a necessity of care for this strange and beautiful planet emerges…

Jumping from A-Z – Suzanne Miller – Canada – 4:03
In my dreams I can fly. Performed for the camera, “Jumping from A-Z”, gestures through an invented movement alphabet while jumping. Airborne, the slow motion effect defies gravity and presents the dancer into a magical realm of disbelief.

End Effect BLACKPITCH – Karolina Wyrwal – Germany – 5:49
The idea for the video was to create our own artistic document of personal plastic usage. Not a critique as such. More an acknowledgement of how damn useful plastic can be, how beautiful along with how permanent and problematic. We collected all our personal plastic for a 2 month period. We filled a room. It was a massive and sobering amount. We used most of it in the video.

DRESS CODE – Didier MULLERAS – France – 6:11
This film is the story of a grey jacket, like a second skin, traveling the world and the bodies.

ID – Cass Mortimer Eipper – Australia – 5:58
‘Id’ follows six dancers in communion, each driven by their own instinctive impulses which manifest fast and slow. Propelled like machines through dispositions and space, oscillations of awareness illuminate shared conflicts — within the self, the couple and the tribe.

Patient Spider – Peter Sparling – USA – 7:06
A vertical strip of late-afternoon sunlight cast on a wall of an apartment in Paris inspired this slow dance of the nude figure as mobile canvas. Images are painted and woven into a kaleidoscopic web via video editing. A setting of a Walt Whitman poem, the musical score by Yehuda Yannay completes the work’s hypnotic spell.

Sintonìa – Mario Cirillo – Italy – 1:12
It’s Dawn. A body lays motionless, in silence. Then, suddenly, but in response to an unseen and irregular metronome, the body begins to move. It seems like seeking its own movement, its harmony and vital rhythm, before starting something new.

Downriver – Andrea Boll – Switzerland – 10:00
Water – Leonardo da Vinci called it ‘the blood of the planet’. A group of people emerges from the water. They try to resist the current of the river and the stream of people in the city, but have to surrender to the flow and are washed ashore. On the shore, the stranded seek for hold and refuge. In the course of the film ‘against or with the flow’ and ‘resistance and devotion’ manifest as a primal instinct, as a survival strategy.

Shadow – Gustavo Lopez Mañas – Spain – 3:12

Mortelle – Nicola Josse – UK – 4:40
Mortelle sees herself through a distorted perspective. Our fight with self image, anxiety and the ability hide our inner thoughts to face the world are expressed through movement.

Amarathine – Chen Jiexiao – Singapore – 15:06
From observations of daily life in Guangzhou, to chilling conciliation with the untold sacrificial stories beneath gentrification. Smell the flower’s fragrance, taste the bruise and blood.

April 18 – Fourth Night – 6:45-8pm – at Movie Garden

Canis Major – Charli Brissey – USA – 10:00
An artist suffering from severe writers block relies on the friendship of their dog in this multi-genre sci-fi short. Based on many true stories, this video-animation hybrid ruminates the relationship between dancing and earthly survival at the “end of the world”.

SHADOW – Francesca Jandasek – USA – 9:04
I first got the idea for this film while researching the Romanian Legend of the Arges Monastery. In the legend, a pregnant woman is immured to make the walls of the monastery stand. After further research, I came across the belief of the “stahie,” or shadow, an ancient Eastern European belief and practice that in order for the walls of a building to stand, someone has to be built into the walls either physically (i.e their body), or metaphysically (i.e their shadow). Ultimately, I was questioning whether, as a woman, it was more important for me to create, or to reproduce. And, why do I have this need? Is it to achieve a sort of immortality, a way to exist beyond my existence, whether through the creation of offspring, or art creation? The shadows represent my personal struggle of what realities/possibilities to choose as a woman artist – art creation vs. procreation.

People in Cities – Rosie Trump – USA – 4:20
People in Cities is a short stop motion dance film which assembles over three thousand still images. Paired with implied environments, four dancers navigate internal and external pressures.

V A C U U M – Nina Chong-Jimenez, Jessica Ray – USA – 4:19
Late, on many nights, I’ve laid feeling completely motionless, as one perspective of my reality would take hold of my mind. I would begin sinking into this place where the other me experiencing this same life lives. She is the reality but so am I, living this life on the outside. We coexist, we battle, she overtakes me many days and many nights, but none of us ever win and neither of us lose. It is there that VACUUM takes place.

she… – Lisa K. Lock – USA – 2:43
A poem without words.

Awakening – Sami Ala – Finland – 3:15
It’s evening. The traveler is sleeping on the road. The sun sets. Slowly he rises up and starts dancing for the sun.

MAKYŌ (THERE IS A GHOST INSIDE YUUU) – Brian Imakura – Japan – 4:55
Makyō (“ghost cave”) is the self-delusional nest that results from clinging to one’s trauma. This film is a depiction of one woman’s escape from that nest.

The Scum Picks Us – Roméo Lefèvre – Belgium – 5:14
I feel like our fingers want to tell something, let’s listen to them. He pinches his sweater and then flies away. The ground falls under his feet. Our fingers are touching. Search for the body. The eyes speak. The head is placed against your shoulder, in your neck. Odors mix. Do you feel it ?We play to get out of the screen. The distance stretches. She rushes into the sky. But I’m attached to the sand.We are born from the dunes. You are not me anymore.

SUNLESS – Corina Andrian (Red-Cor) – Romania – 7:27
DANCE = body + motion How deep can you dive into the concept of “dance”? What moves when everything is still? The still body is alive. The pores breathe, the heart beats, the weather disturbs it. The dynamic viewer is shaken. How far can you strip down the concept of “body”? What is vulnerability when there’s nothing left to strip? Intimacy is lost in the freedom to purely be and inhabit… ‘I am so happy I’m only made of skin and I feel all the pain and everything moves me.’ “SUNLESS” is film embodied. This film was shot REMOTELY in 2 countries (GB, Romania) and 3 cities (London, Bucharest, Timisoara) during the 1st lockdown.

Making Men – Antoine Panier, Harold George – Belgium/Zimbabwe – 19:41
Making Men examines the question of masculinity. This dance film zooms in on 4 individuals in the process of becoming men. As is expected, they proceedunquestioningly into manhood through various stages of their lives, adopting the clearly coded characteristics allowed by society. However, a feeling of unease, in the very depths of their being, oppresses them. They feel uncertainty but also something else, harder to define… Shot in the breathtaking landscape of Zimbabwe, the film features strong and rhythmical choreography but also a special camera work that intensifies emotions inspired by the movement.

April 19 – Closing Night – 6:45-8pm – at Movie Garden

Secondary Surfaces (Re)(de)constructed – Roma Flowers, Nina Martin – USA – 7:30
Three women arduously traverse an expanse of white paper armed only with black charcoal and their bodies. Drawn from a set of corporeal kinetic investigations which combined the definitions of performance as “that which disappears” and art as “the residual document of its creation”, Secondary Surfaces (Re(de)constructed reconfigures those investigations in a screen dance by exploiting video mediation to further blur the boundaries between dance and visual art. Created by video artist Roma Flowers and choreographer Nina Martin, and informed by far west Texas landscapes, geological time and human kinetic processes, Secondary Surfaces (Re)(de)constructed presents meditations on durational concepts of time and the human relationship to endurance, survival, and community.

Chairs – Avner Pinchover – Israel – 11:42
A man hurls chairs at a wall in what seems to be a holy-rage attack. This expressive performance-for-camera fluctuates between satisfaction and futility while simultaneously creating compositions of destructive beauty.

Bória – Iwona Pasińska – Poland – 9:24
The visual layers of this film is co-created with ornamental motifs drawn from Zofia Stryjeńska’s painting “Seasons. November – December (Pageant I – with a deer)”. Fragmentary narration is built of the words of traditional songs in the arrangement and performance of the Maliszów Band, which overlap with the language of contemporary dance, growing out of the inspiration with the Polish and Hutsul folk culture.

AUTONOME – MADA MADA – Alexandre Richard – Canada – 5:15
Montreal, 1954. An exiled author is thrown into a dance with his inner demons. Shaken by the unwavering tides of his life, a gentle touch comes to mind.

De-Eschatology – Charly Santagado, Eriel Santagado – USA – 5:00
De-Eschatology is a physical manifestation of the claustrophobic conditions created by the COVID-19 crisis and the yearning to break free from them. The piece seeks to draw attention to a heightened sense of touch, which directly results from the lack of physical contact many in quarantine face. The film’s trajectory explores the gradual de-escalation of shelter-in-place orders, and its psychological effects.

Bending reality – Elin Osjord – Norway – 7:46
A man in a process of bending the constant influx of reality, trying to balance the outside world with his inside world.

Heresy – Megumi Eda – Germany – 5:50
This film was inspired by a novel about class system discrimination in Japan called “Hakai” by Toson Shimazaki written in the early 1900’s. I am also influenced by the “Black Lives Matter” movement that has pushed me to think deeply about human rights. This story is set in my hometown, and this class-based discrimination existed there even when I was a child and I remember joining in on the prejudice without understanding what it meant. I made this work with the desire to learn.

Nude Landscapes – Luís Damas – Portugal – 1:00
Pictures of living landscapes where the Flame burns in the veins of Dream made flesh.

HELM – Monique Romeiko, Vagaram Choudhary – Canada/India – 4:40
This work is a piece which plays on a loop in an art gallery – the ending immediately starts at the beginning again, endlessly. We created this ghostly love story while in Kerala, inspired by the layers of history and present day life there.

The Circadian Cycle – Garry Stewart – Australia – 16:11
Filmed within the stunning South Australian landscape, The Circadian Cycle draws upon choreography from Australian Dance Theatre’s award winning mainstage work The Beginning of Nature. Using the dancing body as a metaphor, The Circadian Cycle examines morphology, biological rhythm and animal behaviour. The film charts a day from sunrise to evening, moving through cycles of nature, from nascence and awakening to predation and death. The film was shot in stunning locations across South Australia including: Flinders Chase National Park, Lake Bumbunga, Lake Gairdner, Maslin Beach, Mount Lofty Botanic Garden and Mount Remarkable National Park.

Aicha – Elias Djemil – Canada – 3:00
In an attempt for a dialogue, visually and musically, the movement and the non-movement are confronted. Can they co-exist?

Curator Statement

Over the past few years, my personal artistic process has involved trying to merge with people remotely, to ‘touch’ them, using my body and all its systems and parts; my ‘antennas’. From Whitehorse (a small Northern Canadian city) I was craving physical contact with dancers elsewhere, so I made several dances from my own home. I then attempted to dance ‘with’ people from a distance in a duet. Video became a new medium, and thus a new skin. I digitally layered my body with other dancer’s, doing what I referred to then as choreography-as-editing and we got to ‘touch’ each other. The more I manipulated the works through the editing, the more intimate the duets became. As a dance-artist now working with video, I figured there must be many other dance-artists also working with video, and video-artists working with dance. I wondered, what are other dance artists creating, obsessing about, dealing with, or expressing about skin? I discovered that skin is an amazing metaphor: it is a shell, it is a conduit, it is a home, it is a hiding place, it is a container, it is how we feel and touch and give and receive.

ViDEOSKiN was conceived out of that strong desire to connect with dance and video artists from around the world who deal profoundly with the themes of bodily pleasure, pain, emotional expression, internal thought, human interaction, connection and isolation. The thread that binds this show is ‘skin’ and through this lens, international artists explore ideas of metaphor, race, representation, surfaces, canvasses, boundaries, homes, clothing, screens, organs, and many more. Categorized variably as ‘contemporary dance video-art’, ‘experimental dance film’, ‘dance and new media video’, ‘dance animation’, ‘videodance production’ and ‘dance on camera’, the selected works push boundaries through form and/or content. The richness of substance and the infinite diverseness presented in ViDEOSKiN are awe-inspiring. From intimate pieces to vast and digital works, you can expect to see videos from around the world ranging from one to thirty minutes in length. On view will be 20 hours of videos; you will want to come back to the gallery several times to witness it all!

April 15 – Opening Night – 6:45-8pm – at Movie Garden

Flesh and Stone – Olya Glotka – Canada – 4:53
Raw and intimate relationship. Is it fight or play? Is it an internal struggle or artful conscious? Is it a question of belonging or fitting in? Is it just about them or about every one of us?

Bele Beltza – Andrea Hackl, Raffaele Schiavo, Vero Mota – Austria/Netherlands – 8:33
A dreamy fairytale taking you into the high mountains, leading through a soul landscape. It’s a meditation on lightness, birth and death. Inspired by the wisdom of the raven, it’s an ode to the freedom of our spirit and the power of our soul. Shot entirely on a 2.5 months long solo trekking journey in the high mountains of Europe.

After the Reign: Confusion – Jennifer Tarrazi-Scully – USA – 1:45
A dance film interpretation of a woman experiencing the confusing and schizophrenic nature of loss. Confronting many versions of herself and the beginning of the healing process.

The Man Who Traveled Nowhere In Time – Vincent René-Lortie – Canada – 5:04
Through the eyes of Eytan, a man who only exists in the dreams and unconscious minds of others, we question what is “real”, what isn’t, and how we each perceive time differently.

Naked Came I – Peter Sparling – USA – 4:20
A childhood nightmare reanimated 60 years later evokes the terrifying tension within a nine-year-old’s psyche between innocence and violence, vulnerability and power, feminine and masculine energies.

Alta – Antti Ahokoivu – Finland – 3:42
Organic elements in a concrete world.

Kaddume – Álvaro José Peña, Sergio López Guevara, Rodrigo García, Roberto Ávila – Columbia – 3:32
“Kaddume” is an expedition that recognizes San Basilio de Palenque’s past and future relationships. It’s a look to and from the body, the land they live in and the voice of their female ancestors. The same ones that opened new paths in search of freedom. This dance is a new approach through rhythm and movement, to that strength and wisdom. It is an homage of these girls, not professional dancers, to that empowered walk of freedom that still lives in their bodies.

SEBASTIENNE – José Alberto Andrés Lacasta – Spain – 13:37
The arrival of a mysterious engraving about Martyrdom of Saint Sebastian at the Historic Palace of the Aljafería (Zaragoza) awakens the spirit of its old inquisitors, reviving the invincible designs of guilt and desire.

Nine Lives – Reece Schietinger – USA – 4:10
My vision of original music by Eric Long.

Dissipate – Penny Chivas, Paul Michael Henry – UK – 4:33
Two people meet on a platform attempting to rewrite their pasts. Are they here now or have they been here before? Have we already danced these steps? As memory clouds they stumble and jump between movements forgetful of the details that once held everything together. Nothing left but a hazy memory dissipating in the breeze.

Tell me your secrets – Junichi Kagami – Japan – 1:40
Masks and dance are often treated as a complement to costumes in fashion. However, it is not a complement to costumes, but fashion uses hair makeup and masks, dance and music to stimulates human mind. We have hidden faces, dance music, and a dance, I want to express the secret of the designers in fashion. Elements that evolve fashion. Is not it not only costumes and bags but people?

We are all on the same bus – Nuno Serrão – Portugal – 2:00
If we consider Einstein’s space-time concept, we end up with an object where everything that happened and everything that will happen, is understood inside. Through it, we are driven by a vehicle, let’s call a bus, completely autonomous, that goes in a single direction, to the front, and has a single window, the rear. This vehicle, astronomer Arthur Eddington called The Arrow of Time. This idea, although depressingly deterministic, is difficult to ignore in view of the already proven plasticity of time, even when we consider Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle, where the act of observing something, alters its result. A concept that does not invalidate a deterministic Universe, rather, allows the Interpretation of Many Worlds by Hugh Everett, also known as Multiverse.

PungJeong.Gak (風精.刻) A Town with a Blue Hill – Joowon Song – Republic of Korea – 15:27
Hongseok from Taejinsa textile factory and Youngsun from Sunhong supermarket spend their day roaming about in the neighbourhood. From Taejinsa, past the barber shop and textile factory to the 600-year-old maidenhair tree, they hop over empty houses on the hill that have been inhabited at one point. All the places in this neighbourhood are their playground and life’s temporal-space at the same time, ranging from the corner from which trains can be seen, the intersection between the hanok area, Western-style house area, the apartment complex, and the stairway where dead bodies were stacked during the Korean War, to the clothes line on Youngsun’s rooftop. In their journey on Cheongpa Hill, a neighbourhood sentenced to death in the name of urban redevelopment, Youngsun, Hongseok, and traces of life glimmer. Drawing from poet Choi Seung-ja’s “Do You Remember” Cheongpa-dong, Youngsun and Hongseok sing in bodily gestures to the city light down the hill. “And now, like worn-out shoes without an owner / When I wander aimlessly in the field / Do you remember Cheongpa- dong // The winter from a few centuries ago / When we lay ourselves on top of each other like flower petals / Drifting away in the snow-clad dream” – excerpt from “Do you Remember” Cheongpa-dong (1981)

April 16 – Second Night – 6:45-8pm – at Movie Garden

Whim – Chelsy Mitchell – USA – 2:40
What is it for the mind to be housed in a body? As we go from day to night, Shaq allows his mental state to become physical.

Tales from the Loop – Isabel Ball – USA – 2:00
it is better to be lost and free, than to be caged and conflicted inside

Nadie – Roberto Martínez – France/Spain – 2:55
“Nobody knows me. Not my psychiatrist. Not even the shower head. Not my cup of coffee. Not my eyelashes. Nobody knows anything about me. No one has discovered me yet. Nothing enters my body. Everything crosses it. Nobody knows me.” Niño de Elche

Terrain – Daniel Gwirtzman – USA – 11:45
Terrain, filmed in the desert region of Murcia, southern Spain, depicts a body in a vast mountainous landscape. What story can a body in this space provoke? How does a body surrender to natural forces: the unforgiving contours of a jagged terrain, an inhospitable climate, and the relentless teasing of insects? When is movement authentic, when is it artificial? How does the acquisition of learned behavior and dance technique influence habits, choices, and realities? The film explores these questions, highlighting the contradictions between the natural and the man-made.

Lucy – Ioanna Tsinividi – Greece – 6:26
Elegant and melancholic Lucy is in her chateau, wandering about in her bedroom. Lucy fetches a box hidden underneath her bed and opens it. Lucy stands in front of the mirror and holds an evening gown against her body. Lucy takes off her long white dress…

Out of Ruin – Marta Renzi – USA – 15:00
The work shares a visually rich and kinetic allegory of individual clans in isolation who journey to discover their paths to a place of unity.

OI! – Yasmin Mello – Ireland – 10:34
A Brazilian couple struggle with accommodation in Dublin during a housing crisis as a villainous landlord attempts to swindle them in this innovative and creative videodance piece.

Dante Sonata – Margaret Williams – UK – 18:00
A dance and piano collaboration exploring the the emotions of Dante’s epic journey to the three parts of the afterlife – Inferno, Purgatorio and Paradiso accompanied by a virtuoso performance of Liszt’s Dante Sonata.

Have a Nice Day – Susan Toni – USA – 2:49
Two uncompromising women struggle to see eye-to-eye while sizing each other up, wondering whether they should even like each other.

Axis Mundi – Patrick Foch – France – 2:00
Two bodies merge and evolve precisely between earth and sky, in a quest for physical and spiritual elevation along this invisible thread.

April 17 – Third Night – 6:45-8pm – at Movie Garden

Picnic – Wendy Rein, Ryan T. Smith – USA – 3:57
“Picnic” takes place within a surreal, grassy bubble, echoing the experience of its creators while sheltering in place in New York’s Hudson Valley. Scenes that gleam on the surface, but where a beautiful field of poppies or a shiny red apple could pose a threat.

Kŏnˈvoiˌ- Claudia Hill – Germany – 9:23
(The act of accompanying or escorting, especially for protective purposes.) A group of travellers of unknown origin arrive out of nowhere into an open landscape. Over the course of a day, they explore and scan the environment with their unique handmade triangular antennae. Through their sensual decoding of information and hypnotic choreography of sign language, a necessity of care for this strange and beautiful planet emerges…

Jumping from A-Z – Suzanne Miller – Canada – 4:03
In my dreams I can fly. Performed for the camera, “Jumping from A-Z”, gestures through an invented movement alphabet while jumping. Airborne, the slow motion effect defies gravity and presents the dancer into a magical realm of disbelief.

End Effect BLACKPITCH – Karolina Wyrwal – Germany – 5:49
The idea for the video was to create our own artistic document of personal plastic usage. Not a critique as such. More an acknowledgement of how damn useful plastic can be, how beautiful along with how permanent and problematic. We collected all our personal plastic for a 2 month period. We filled a room. It was a massive and sobering amount. We used most of it in the video.

DRESS CODE – Didier MULLERAS – France – 6:11
This film is the story of a grey jacket, like a second skin, traveling the world and the bodies.

ID – Cass Mortimer Eipper – Australia – 5:58
‘Id’ follows six dancers in communion, each driven by their own instinctive impulses which manifest fast and slow. Propelled like machines through dispositions and space, oscillations of awareness illuminate shared conflicts — within the self, the couple and the tribe.

Patient Spider – Peter Sparling – USA – 7:06
A vertical strip of late-afternoon sunlight cast on a wall of an apartment in Paris inspired this slow dance of the nude figure as mobile canvas. Images are painted and woven into a kaleidoscopic web via video editing. A setting of a Walt Whitman poem, the musical score by Yehuda Yannay completes the work’s hypnotic spell.

Sintonìa – Mario Cirillo – Italy – 1:12
It’s Dawn. A body lays motionless, in silence. Then, suddenly, but in response to an unseen and irregular metronome, the body begins to move. It seems like seeking its own movement, its harmony and vital rhythm, before starting something new.

Downriver – Andrea Boll – Switzerland – 10:00
Water – Leonardo da Vinci called it ‘the blood of the planet’. A group of people emerges from the water. They try to resist the current of the river and the stream of people in the city, but have to surrender to the flow and are washed ashore. On the shore, the stranded seek for hold and refuge. In the course of the film ‘against or with the flow’ and ‘resistance and devotion’ manifest as a primal instinct, as a survival strategy.

Shadow – Gustavo Lopez Mañas – Spain – 3:12

Mortelle – Nicola Josse – UK – 4:40
Mortelle sees herself through a distorted perspective. Our fight with self image, anxiety and the ability hide our inner thoughts to face the world are expressed through movement.

Amarathine – Chen Jiexiao – Singapore – 15:06
From observations of daily life in Guangzhou, to chilling conciliation with the untold sacrificial stories beneath gentrification. Smell the flower’s fragrance, taste the bruise and blood.

April 18 – Fourth Night – 6:45-8pm – at Movie Garden

Canis Major – Charli Brissey – USA – 10:00
An artist suffering from severe writers block relies on the friendship of their dog in this multi-genre sci-fi short. Based on many true stories, this video-animation hybrid ruminates the relationship between dancing and earthly survival at the “end of the world”.

SHADOW – Francesca Jandasek – USA – 9:04
I first got the idea for this film while researching the Romanian Legend of the Arges Monastery. In the legend, a pregnant woman is immured to make the walls of the monastery stand. After further research, I came across the belief of the “stahie,” or shadow, an ancient Eastern European belief and practice that in order for the walls of a building to stand, someone has to be built into the walls either physically (i.e their body), or metaphysically (i.e their shadow). Ultimately, I was questioning whether, as a woman, it was more important for me to create, or to reproduce. And, why do I have this need? Is it to achieve a sort of immortality, a way to exist beyond my existence, whether through the creation of offspring, or art creation? The shadows represent my personal struggle of what realities/possibilities to choose as a woman artist – art creation vs. procreation.

People in Cities – Rosie Trump – USA – 4:20
People in Cities is a short stop motion dance film which assembles over three thousand still images. Paired with implied environments, four dancers navigate internal and external pressures.

V A C U U M – Nina Chong-Jimenez, Jessica Ray – USA – 4:19
Late, on many nights, I’ve laid feeling completely motionless, as one perspective of my reality would take hold of my mind. I would begin sinking into this place where the other me experiencing this same life lives. She is the reality but so am I, living this life on the outside. We coexist, we battle, she overtakes me many days and many nights, but none of us ever win and neither of us lose. It is there that VACUUM takes place.

she… – Lisa K. Lock – USA – 2:43
A poem without words.

Awakening – Sami Ala – Finland – 3:15
It’s evening. The traveler is sleeping on the road. The sun sets. Slowly he rises up and starts dancing for the sun.

MAKYŌ (THERE IS A GHOST INSIDE YUUU) – Brian Imakura – Japan – 4:55
Makyō (“ghost cave”) is the self-delusional nest that results from clinging to one’s trauma. This film is a depiction of one woman’s escape from that nest.

The Scum Picks Us – Roméo Lefèvre – Belgium – 5:14
I feel like our fingers want to tell something, let’s listen to them. He pinches his sweater and then flies away. The ground falls under his feet. Our fingers are touching. Search for the body. The eyes speak. The head is placed against your shoulder, in your neck. Odors mix. Do you feel it ?We play to get out of the screen. The distance stretches. She rushes into the sky. But I’m attached to the sand.We are born from the dunes. You are not me anymore.

SUNLESS – Corina Andrian (Red-Cor) – Romania – 7:27
DANCE = body + motion How deep can you dive into the concept of “dance”? What moves when everything is still? The still body is alive. The pores breathe, the heart beats, the weather disturbs it. The dynamic viewer is shaken. How far can you strip down the concept of “body”? What is vulnerability when there’s nothing left to strip? Intimacy is lost in the freedom to purely be and inhabit… ‘I am so happy I’m only made of skin and I feel all the pain and everything moves me.’ “SUNLESS” is film embodied. This film was shot REMOTELY in 2 countries (GB, Romania) and 3 cities (London, Bucharest, Timisoara) during the 1st lockdown.

Making Men – Antoine Panier, Harold George – Belgium/Zimbabwe – 19:41
Making Men examines the question of masculinity. This dance film zooms in on 4 individuals in the process of becoming men. As is expected, they proceedunquestioningly into manhood through various stages of their lives, adopting the clearly coded characteristics allowed by society. However, a feeling of unease, in the very depths of their being, oppresses them. They feel uncertainty but also something else, harder to define… Shot in the breathtaking landscape of Zimbabwe, the film features strong and rhythmical choreography but also a special camera work that intensifies emotions inspired by the movement.

April 19 – Closing Night – 6:45-8pm – at Movie Garden

Secondary Surfaces (Re)(de)constructed – Roma Flowers, Nina Martin – USA – 7:30
Three women arduously traverse an expanse of white paper armed only with black charcoal and their bodies. Drawn from a set of corporeal kinetic investigations which combined the definitions of performance as “that which disappears” and art as “the residual document of its creation”, Secondary Surfaces (Re(de)constructed reconfigures those investigations in a screen dance by exploiting video mediation to further blur the boundaries between dance and visual art. Created by video artist Roma Flowers and choreographer Nina Martin, and informed by far west Texas landscapes, geological time and human kinetic processes, Secondary Surfaces (Re)(de)constructed presents meditations on durational concepts of time and the human relationship to endurance, survival, and community.

Chairs – Avner Pinchover – Israel – 11:42
A man hurls chairs at a wall in what seems to be a holy-rage attack. This expressive performance-for-camera fluctuates between satisfaction and futility while simultaneously creating compositions of destructive beauty.

Bória – Iwona Pasińska – Poland – 9:24
The visual layers of this film is co-created with ornamental motifs drawn from Zofia Stryjeńska’s painting “Seasons. November – December (Pageant I – with a deer)”. Fragmentary narration is built of the words of traditional songs in the arrangement and performance of the Maliszów Band, which overlap with the language of contemporary dance, growing out of the inspiration with the Polish and Hutsul folk culture.

AUTONOME – MADA MADA – Alexandre Richard – Canada – 5:15
Montreal, 1954. An exiled author is thrown into a dance with his inner demons. Shaken by the unwavering tides of his life, a gentle touch comes to mind.

De-Eschatology – Charly Santagado, Eriel Santagado – USA – 5:00
De-Eschatology is a physical manifestation of the claustrophobic conditions created by the COVID-19 crisis and the yearning to break free from them. The piece seeks to draw attention to a heightened sense of touch, which directly results from the lack of physical contact many in quarantine face. The film’s trajectory explores the gradual de-escalation of shelter-in-place orders, and its psychological effects.

Bending reality – Elin Osjord – Norway – 7:46
A man in a process of bending the constant influx of reality, trying to balance the outside world with his inside world.

Heresy – Megumi Eda – Germany – 5:50
This film was inspired by a novel about class system discrimination in Japan called “Hakai” by Toson Shimazaki written in the early 1900’s. I am also influenced by the “Black Lives Matter” movement that has pushed me to think deeply about human rights. This story is set in my hometown, and this class-based discrimination existed there even when I was a child and I remember joining in on the prejudice without understanding what it meant. I made this work with the desire to learn.

Nude Landscapes – Luís Damas – Portugal – 1:00
Pictures of living landscapes where the Flame burns in the veins of Dream made flesh.

HELM – Monique Romeiko, Vagaram Choudhary – Canada/India – 4:40
This work is a piece which plays on a loop in an art gallery – the ending immediately starts at the beginning again, endlessly. We created this ghostly love story while in Kerala, inspired by the layers of history and present day life there.

The Circadian Cycle – Garry Stewart – Australia – 16:11
Filmed within the stunning South Australian landscape, The Circadian Cycle draws upon choreography from Australian Dance Theatre’s award winning mainstage work The Beginning of Nature. Using the dancing body as a metaphor, The Circadian Cycle examines morphology, biological rhythm and animal behaviour. The film charts a day from sunrise to evening, moving through cycles of nature, from nascence and awakening to predation and death. The film was shot in stunning locations across South Australia including: Flinders Chase National Park, Lake Bumbunga, Lake Gairdner, Maslin Beach, Mount Lofty Botanic Garden and Mount Remarkable National Park.

Aicha – Elias Djemil – Canada – 3:00
In an attempt for a dialogue, visually and musically, the movement and the non-movement are confronted. Can they co-exist?

Curator Statement

Over the past few years, my personal artistic process has involved trying to merge with people remotely, to ‘touch’ them, using my body and all its systems and parts; my ‘antennas’. From Whitehorse (a small Northern Canadian city) I was craving physical contact with dancers elsewhere, so I made several dances from my own home. I then attempted to dance ‘with’ people from a distance in a duet. Video became a new medium, and thus a new skin. I digitally layered my body with other dancer’s, doing what I referred to then as choreography-as-editing and we got to ‘touch’ each other. The more I manipulated the works through the editing, the more intimate the duets became. As a dance-artist now working with video, I figured there must be many other dance-artists also working with video, and video-artists working with dance. I wondered, what are other dance artists creating, obsessing about, dealing with, or expressing about skin? I discovered that skin is an amazing metaphor: it is a shell, it is a conduit, it is a home, it is a hiding place, it is a container, it is how we feel and touch and give and receive.

ViDEOSKiN was conceived out of that strong desire to connect with dance and video artists from around the world who deal profoundly with the themes of bodily pleasure, pain, emotional expression, internal thought, human interaction, connection and isolation. The thread that binds this show is ‘skin’ and through this lens, international artists explore ideas of metaphor, race, representation, surfaces, canvasses, boundaries, homes, clothing, screens, organs, and many more. Categorized variably as ‘contemporary dance video-art’, ‘experimental dance film’, ‘dance and new media video’, ‘dance animation’, ‘videodance production’ and ‘dance on camera’, the selected works push boundaries through form and/or content. The richness of substance and the infinite diverseness presented in ViDEOSKiN are awe-inspiring. From intimate pieces to vast and digital works, you can expect to see videos from around the world ranging from one to thirty minutes in length. On view will be 20 hours of videos; you will want to come back to the gallery several times to witness it all!
