Otis Walks Into The Woods (c) 2016 film by Derrick Belcham & Emily Terndrup (US)

Otis Walks In The Woods depicts the dynamic relationship of power, possession and otherness within a transparent environment. Set within the historic landmark, The Philip Johnson Glass House, the dancers are at once within and without the glass enclosure, oscillating between the frustrating realities of the banality of their present and the idealizations of the outside world. The architecture of the grounds becomes the anchoring metaphor for the pair’s dual states of rigidity and flow. Within the seemingly fixed and defined walls of the main structure, the minds of the dancers are explored in an excerpt of their complexity.

Traces (c) 2018 film by Nicola Hepp (Netherlands)

A man and a woman together alone in a relationship that seems to drain them both. Is this the end or the beginning of the end?
The film Traces takes its inspiration from Jason Mabana’s dance piece ‘Last Line’ which he created for the JMD/Urban Contemporary Department of the Amsterdam School of the Arts in 2018. Director Nicola Hepp felt a deep connection to his work and juxtaposed the movement material with ideas of representing a failing relationship. The underlying sense of time, rush and fragility informs the viewer of a sadness inherent to the duet.
