About

"One of the best dance films ever made." –Yvonne Rainer The image fades in. For two seconds Trisha is there standing motionless, and she starts to dance her solo WATER MOTOR, indeed moving as quickly as water. The movements are so fast and intricate that you feel you are missing half of it. When the dance is finished Trisha is standing motionless as in the beginning, but closer to the camera and the image fades to black. The images fades in again and Trisha doing the same dance, but this time in slow motion (shot at 48 FPS) and the movement takes on a luscious quality that informs the viewer of what was missed before. –Babette Mangolte
