Maya Deren

Ritual In Transfigured Time (1946) 16mm, black and white, 15 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Dance, Philosophical

In Maya Deren's Ritual in Transfigured Time we have gestures that invite us to move into step with them, abandoning the comfort of the known and giving ourselves over to so many strange partners. This silent short begins in a domestic environment, moves to a party scene, and ends with modern dance performed in an outdoor setting. The film's continuity is established by an emphasis on gesture and/or dance throughout.
