A film by Kersti Jan Werdal
Staged around Manhattan’s Upper West Side, Slow Shapes reveals the nervous oscillation and alienating presence of driving cars and commuting peoples in contrast to dancer Brittany Bailey’s slow-moving body. As Bailey uses sidewalks and roadside monuments for a stage, her body creates improvised shapes utilizing the negative space between limbs, concrete, vehicles, and locals walking to where they are going.
