dance, film, installation
Very short and very small dance films are presented on tiny screens in a darkened kiosk for an audience of one. The result is a uniquely personal, interactive experience for the viewer which evokes the nostalgia of an old-time penny arcade.
The project evolved out of guerrilla performances choreographed, rehearsed, and filmed in Lower Manhattan's public spaces. Each film is done in one take and no artificial light is used during the shoot.
This process of creation and exhibition encourages the filmmakers to concentrate on what they feel is useful in dance and on film: corporeal and mechanical magic. A collaboration between Brayver Concern member James Bigbee Garver and Choreographer Peter Kyle.
