An intricate weave of dance
14 June 2005 | by (Gloucester, England) – See all my reviews

A most interesting look at dance and choreography which really needs several viewings.

This film is based on almost abstract concepts (the artist's mother is an abstract painter herself) and consists of a stream of movement, derived from three human figures against neutral backgrounds. They are highly stylised and beautifully simplified.

Triangles abound - in the shapes, gestures and movements of the figures, their complex inter-relationships (on several levels, including the sexual), the geometrical patterns on the screen, the symmetries of colours used, even the whole intricate structure of the film.

A fundamental aspect of the work is the great variety of music by Charlie Hart and the way the figures react to, and are created by, it.

Erica Russell grew up in South Africa, and was - as she says - "not exposed to Television". I think this film shows the value of such an upbringing.
