as if trying to catch smoke, dance x video collaboration

Collaborating on a dance production with SLATE Contemporary Dance Company and sound artist Pan Daijing. Exploring the theme of dreams, pasts and the intangible, to create an immersive experience. Melding experimental sound, dance, and a visual interpretation of the themes through elements of multimedia at the Minsheng Art Museum, first performed as part of Jue Festival 2015 and at Vision Art Centre in May 2015. (all Shanghai)

Four visual elements were developed into videos:

  • 1: smoke – impossible to grasp dreams
  • 2: photos – dancers’ environment  / existence [details, subtleties]
  • 3: line drawings – actions / words / movement expressed
  • 4: bodies – static detail shots of movement
