"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 matched with its frantic and dramatic movements. Much of the dance was put together using short and abrupt cuts, with a lot of zooming in and out focused on the faces of the dancers to capture emotion. The camera was also moved around frantically to match the dancers frantic movement, making the piece more emotionally driven.
I think that what made this piece so interesting to watch was the match in the movement and the way the camera was used. Using the camera in the way it was used, shows the viewer the deep emotional connotations the piece is clearly trying to show.
