︎︎︎ Submersion

18min single channel film (2017)

In the single channel video Submersion two young dancers perform individual movements in repetition from a choreography that was created by Elfriede Mahler titled Fuente. This choreography is considered the most technically difficult in Danza Libre’s repertoire and after mastering its movement the dancers have a foundation that can be applied to all other dances. In addition it functions as a means of memorial transfer between bodies where the dancers become fully engrossed in the historical trajectories that are informing their movement. Over the course of this repetition the dancers persist until they attain a full state of submersion.
