The Dance Postcard Project

On a ledge in Leschi, I tried to make sense of a journey between change and consistency, between plans and improvisation, rootedness and freeflow. A search for something that might have been inside of me all along.

The score:
A single camera on a ledge catches an improvised dance.
a few takes, minimal editing, music I've been listening to (later) + local sounds.
make it relate to the (s)p(l)ace, alone, in the moment. let these amazing alternative stages inspire

make it relate to the (s)p(l)ace, alone, in the moment. let these amazing alternative stages inspire you. dance for a future audience.

A postcard is about capturing an image of a place, and sending a quick message. Scribbling out a short note for an imaginary audience that will receive the message after the fact. A dance video is the same way. Short, instant, local...with the ability to travel and be archived and be shared.

Wish you were here! To watch me dance or to dance with me...
