Bodies on Closed Circuit TV

Posted July 9th, 2009

The German Federal Cultural Foundation runs this cool program called Choreographic Captures (click the little British flag in the bottom left to get the English-language site), dedicated to the intersection of film and physical movement. They, in turn, run the International Choreographic Captures Competition, which just wrapped up it’s second year. Guess who won?

This filmic interpolation of bodies in urban spaces (which appeared at last year’s Live Arts Festival) took first. Congrats to Cie. Willi Dorner, and to Willi Dorner and Michael Palm, who collaborated on the film! And check out above under inbetween at Live Arts this fall.
