pas de cheval


This film draws from a long lineage of movement studies for the camera – including Muybridge's motion studies of both humans and animals.  Realized entirely in-camera, the goal for this film was to transfer aspects of live performance execution to a one-take process.  “Pas de cheval," or step of the horse, is the classical ballet action in reference but here it is modernized and hybridized into moments of unison and variation.
