Description

A set of improvisational movement “utterances” shot against black backdrop suggested an echo effect in editing. The results suit my obsession with painting and the stroke of the brush as an extension of danced motion. Thollem’s music struck an elegiac note, and I immediately thought of the recent loss of a poet and old friend, Ulf Goebel.
