The DARKROOM


A ten minute dance/projection piece in BODYTORQUE with the Australian Ballet, Sydney Theatre, May 2007.
Choreographer, Narelle Benjamin and myself use our formula screen design - Black Scrim downstage with high contrast black and white 'ghosted' objects with a background on White Cyc. 7 weeks of time lapse video of 4 different roses growing and dying at the beginning of winter. They flower in a derelict room, three dancers from the ballet company articulate a man's early death and his surrealist signals from the afterlife. Music: 'Drive By' - The Necks.
