Looking at film composition as choreography, I see them as very similar in their arrangement of time, space and energy. I did not want to film or document a dance since this would neither take advantage of the medium nor would it produce something sufficiently different to inform or investigate my existing practice. I wanted to try and really bring dance into film through an embodied film making process. Consequently although I wanted to make a film in a way that came from dance, what I consider the equivalency between composition and choreography has the effect that the end product isn’t objectively different from a work of pure film.
