The Moebius Strip (2001) by Gilles Jobin




The movement and choreography in this video, while very simple, is very interesting and captivating. The camera work throughout the piece accentuates the sensual and mysterious feeling of the movement. The space that the dance was filmed in is very plain and geometric. There is simply a black floor, with…

DANCE 340 Blog #1


The first video that I watched was “Pan- A Contemporary Dance for Film”.  The movement was more so humanistic gestures as opposed to classical dance elements.  These gestures gave the connotation of anger, stress, and anxiety.  The movement was very emotion based.  The choreography throughout the video was repetitious and often used unison. …

The first video I viewed is called "Lucky Trimmer Tanz Performance Serie 19". It can be found here:


The purpose of this video is to showcase snippets of performance and choreography (shown through a series of solos and duets), rather than to create a work of art in itself. The camera techniques and cuts… Continue

Blog Post Number One Due 2-12-13


"Pan" a piece inspired by Guillermo del Toro's film Pan's Labyrinth, explored the journey through emotion and experience. An exploration of fear and anxiety, "Pan" used a lot of short and repetitive movements both on the floor and standing. Set in a small abandoned house, the dance took on a eery and fearful tone which was…

Blog #1 DANC 340


The first video I viewed was called KAMPA and it was directed by Lucie Mirkova. The dancer's movement was very interesting in this video. Most of the mobility of the movement came from the upper limbs, head, and torso. The dancer only used her legs to bend and walk a few steps. The majority of the movement was in consistent contact with the concrete wall. The dancer's attachment to the wall…

Blog 1 DANC 340



I found this video to be very interesting because the choreographer and the videographer both appealed to human senses in a very striking way. The dancer was in a small hallway with a barred exit, and although in reality there was plenty of space, the…
