Dance (2000) 16mm, color, 6.5 min

Genre: Experimental

This film begins with points of light defining a dark space out of which a female dancer (Vivienne Palmer) emerges dressed in a semi-transparent green dress. Her dance is visually echoed by close-up superimpositions of her arms, legs, and feet and then later by her distant figure seeming to mimic and/or perhaps to control her foreground, sometimes back-lit, image. She often paused thoughtfully in he dance, breaks steps, walks away etc. defining the perimeters of the dance. Finally she appears naked, midst dance, and takes heraldic stance at end.
