A dance journey
“Keep going north,” he told himself, for want of a better objective. And he would keep on photographing. Perhaps he might chance upon a revelation, a resolution. He might find out why he came after all.
Cataloging an overland journey across the snow-covered landscapes of Hokkaido with thousands of high-resolution still images, this dance work tries to overcome the limitations of a camera in capturing the breath and immensity of time and space. The resultant montage uncovers a dance that connects figure and ground.
