Initiated as a filmic avatar of the performance showdown, this audiovisual work expands the format of screen dance or documentary:
Finding varied ways of relating dance, text and moving images, showdown AV offers non-didactic peeks into the narrative worlds and research that accompanied the process of making of the performance. Through delicate editing and intimate close ups it invites the audience to fabulate along the movement and lean into the frame of images.
There is an optional score for the audience. Click the symbol if you want to listen to it.
If you feel like fading out of showdown AV's universe more slowly, here's a playlist that you can listen to.
