In this exciting new dance film by Daniel Belton and Good Company Arts being projected across the North Quad, Ad Parnassum - Purapurawhetū, dancers become part of a shared visual and sculptural language. Dance artists Jahra Wasasala and Christina Guieb open the work which brings together Pacific and Mediterranean influences.
Imagine the film engine room as a kind of digital kiln, where editing is a collage of materials bound together by artistic decisions in rhythm and tone, that ultimately metamorphose as stories synchronised to Dame Gillian Whitehead's music. Music drives the total work which carries human figures in an elongated vista - a singing bowl brimming with movement and colour codes.
The dance film goes for roughly 30mins, and will play four times between 6pm - 8pm.
