Video Tanz Performance
MO | 21. April 2014 | 13:00 & 15:00
Good Company Arts in association with
Zentrum Paul Klee presents internationally recognised choreographer and film
maker, Daniel Belton (NZ) for two exciting live events mixing video projection,
line and dance.
A co-operation with xm:lab Saarbrucken (http://xmlab.org/).
In association with Zentrum Paul Klee, the Goethe Institut and xm:lab, New Zealand artist Daniel Belton presents TRACES, a series of film collages where the human form is the instrument through which digital manipulation is used to investigate themes of mathematical scale, history and connections to topography. The body is the agent for inquiry; figures are removed from traditional, earthbound settings and juxtaposed on film using graphic design invoking the laws of physics and geometry. Dancers are dwarfed on screen, then brought back to full-bodied life, sometimes as fanciful characters. Through these mysterious journeys Daniel Belton illuminates the enduring cycles that connect and bind us. The works pay homage to the drawings and paintings of Bauhaus Master Paul Klee, and the pioneering chronophotography of Étienne-Jules Marey.
