The woman, small and thin, all dressed in black, with black earmuffs and gloves, strode purposefully along the road, her blonde hair shining in contrast as the mid-day sun bore down on her, making her clothing seem inappropriate as it looked a lot warmer than the 5 centigrade of the air. Behind her trailed a tightly strung leash, attached to the collar of an astonishingly large husky-like dog, snow white from head to tail, except for it's pale yellow eyes. The woman pushed on quickly without any sign of being bothered by the dog that pulled on the leash with a weight that must have equalled the woman’s own; almost as if the dog wasn't there. Strange.
The music is an old communist youth song from China
This video is one of the tools for a new, open-source physical-theatre project by Jens Bäckvall and Christian Adelhorst Rossil. Every day in 2012, we will create a small movement or other idea for the stage with a minimum length of 10 seconds. This will be filmed and uploaded. The uploads are not meant as finished material, but are sketches for possible further work. Every video and the things done in them are open-source, meaning that anyone may copy, use or be inspired by the videos and movements and use them in any way they want to. All that we ask is that you mention our names in any flyers etc. if you use it. Also, we ask you to comment on the material, either through writing or creating and filming material of your own. Anything you upload will also become open-source and a part of the project. In the beginning of 2013, we will create a performance, based on and using some or all of the material that we, and others, have created. See our home-page for more information: t-nova.org/2473652012-EN.html
