BAD HOUSE: Experimental Cinema w/Live Original Music (incl. Directors Talk)
Sat, 20 May 2017, 23:59 – Sun, 21 May 2017, 01:00 BST
Part of The Crossmodalist Cabaret
BAD HOUSE: Experimental Cinema with avant-garde music by composers Sky Ainsbury and Aleksandr Brusentsev (USA). Includes screening, live performance, and introduction and talk by the director.
Director Sky Ainsbury presents two short experimental dance films;
What's Left When is an externalisation, via dance, of the inner world of an individual subjected to dehumanising scrutiny and self-assessment. A film that touches on the fantastical worlds of Kafka and The Sorcerer's Apprentice in its depiction of that no-man's land between borders, that black box of statelessness where a person's humanity is reducible to which boxes they can truthfully tick.
Getting on Better With Imaginary Friends explores Jungian process in the form of contemporary dance – a woman, beset with obstacles on her path to union with her animus, begins a process of reintegration with the unconscious impulses and forces that govern her existence.
