‘ Out Side In’
PREMIERE NOV 2015 | REWIND FILM FESTIVAL
Chosen to show at LIGHT-MOVES FESTIVAL OF SCREEN DANCE 2016
Out Side In examines the physical and sociological impact of pregnancy and motherhood. Drawing from a series of interviews, the work was developed in collaboration with a wide demographic of Dublin based women and tells the story of one woman’s struggle to accept the transition, as her inner world becomes exposed.
This work is an outcome of research into new modes of collaboration through screen based technology. The footage was gathered almost exclusively  through improvised movement and explores the the editor as choreographer. A reduction in large expansive movements, creates space for the camera to pick up on the subtleties of the dancers choices. This technique is intended for application in collaboration with non-dancers and community participants.
