Schattentanz is the experimental encounter between sound artist Elfyn and dancer Maya Orchesis.
Industrial sounds meet movement inspired by ritual dance. Improvisation is the trusted approach by both artists as it allows the body to unfold its own narrative, free from the constraints of choreography, and immersed in the present dialogue between unconscious symbolism and outer expression.
"Schattentanz" builds on Elfyn's performance piece "I'll Sing You a Song, My Lips Won't Move": vimeo.com/201155450
Filmed by Neil Palmer in November 2016 at the Studio, Whippingham Road, Brighton.
