1. Synopsis
    Dance video about a one-legged man who has a three-legged dog. Commissioned by Touch Compass Dance Trust. 2003

    Concept Outline
    On the banks of a river bank, a dance floor, destiny's head, reared once more
    three am the dark of night, a three legged dog hastaken flight
    brushed aside by his lifes past
    a union, our souls to hold fast
    Boiski it seemed has a plan, him my dog and I his man
    how i ponder he chose me
    I with one and he with three
    this mystery yet i do unravel
    four legs between us, the same road to travel.

    [Warning: This video contains nudity and other content that may disturb. Viewer discretion advised.]

    'Part 1: Choreography with a Camera' highlights how Alyx’s early live performance work (as dancer and choreographer) informs how she captures movement in film. This section of the exhibition explores how characters and cameras dance with one another - presenting excerpts of Alyx's early dance films, the more choreographed elements from her short films, and the head-turning music videos that she directed for Wellington favourites Minuit.

    This video contains excerpts of the following works:
    Small War, 2003
    Passage, 2003
    The Garden, 2004
    Union, 2003
    Pandora, 2005
    Fuji, 2005
    The Chairs, 2008

    Museum of Modern Activity (MoMA) is not to be confused with Museum of Modern Art in New York (nor any other 'MoMA' for that matter). Museum of Modern Activity is an entirely different gallery - based in Wellington, New Zealand, and affiliated with RadioActive.fm. Maybe one day we'll be affiliated with other MoMAs around the world, but not today.
