Video for installation.

The installation of this second version of ‘Geste’ is either a) the two synchronised videos are projected on opposite walls so that the performer's actions are mirrored OR b) as in this excerpt with one video above the other.

This is an excerpt from a piece in which two dancers 'perform' a choreography without moving. The choreography is a 10 minute cycle. The choreography is a coordinated duet between the two dancers which is detailed and physically demanding. My interest is in the origin of thought in movement, and movement in thought. In this sense, thought, or consciousness, begins with our need to move, to retain a past and present in relation to space and time (a here, now and a there, then). 'Geste' inverses this formulation where the coordination of body, time and space is held in memory and re-enacted without movement. The resulting clumsiness on the boundary between thought and action is the focus of the piece.
