"la petite mort"
By Jeannette Ginslov

Autopsy: (a.) a personal observation
Eros: (n.) the primordial god of sexual love and beauty

Commissioned by
Danish Dance Theatre

A personal observation of desire, beauty, erotic love and “la petite mort”. Ginslov captures authentic emotions and movement with the medium of Screendance, an interdisciplinary genre of dance and cinema. Using the somatic system of Alba Emoting that trains the performer to elicit raw authentic emotions, the focus is on emotional and kinaesthetic amplification. The film emphasizes affect - a viewer’s empathic and visceral response to the performer and camera dancing together in the sumptuous location of the Sofie Badet in Copenhagen.
