flowchart 2 - Anni Spadafora and Oliver Husain at dancemakers, Toronto, February 20th 2019
curated by Amelia Ehrhardt
camera Francesca Chudnoff
Q - Oliver and Anni - I know little about what you'll be doing together at Flowchart which is always so exciting to me. Can you talk about where your practices converge and how you're coming together for this work?
A: We’re both coming from two different fields and very different approaches. Anni is a founding member of the band New Fries and a practicing weaver. Oliver is a filmmaker and visual artist, working with eclectic narrations and layered postproduction. For our flowchart collaboration we chose a floral clip of footage from Oliver’s archive as a starting point. It was filmed on a cloudy day at a vista point on a mountain in West Sumatra, Indonesia. We’re using the movement of the camera exploring the location as a score for music and choreography. The clouded vista point seems like a perfect place for our two paths to converge - and we invite the audience to meet us there as well.
