The Broken Vase

 

Genre: Dance

A pastiche of 40's/50's film noir paranoiac spy thrillers. Kafkaesque maze like film exploring a fun poke at old time thrillers, black and white, grainy, deteriorated film quality, long shadows and quizzical eyes. The piece is made up of a mosaic of roughly cut and pasted footage of cityscapes sliding in and out of view, roads enter and leave, as do houses, walls and chimneys. Live action footage of a dancer will be digitally manipulated and put into this Escher like landscape, to dance, climb and run around the landscape. The general plot is simple, a character is lost, or getting nowhere fast in the inescapable metropolis. An overly theatrical soundscape will backdrop the film.
