Presents seven short dance films from around the world. Boy, considered a dance film classic, turns an ordinary boy into a superhero as he moves with stealth and grace through a dramatic coastal landscape, responding to this empty universe, manipulating it and conjuring up his own imaginary world. In Burst, a couple's intimate dance in the bedroom is interrupted by a sudden and unexpected burst water pipe; the water may be cool, but this couple burns up the screen. Cargo presents one man's pit stop on the road of life, where he pauses to rest and contemplate whether to continue the journey; sometimes dark, sometimes funny and always sexy, the performer fills the interior of a 1969 Buick Skylark with his physical and emotional self. Case Studies is a faux-scientific investigation of ASDICT (Adult Sleep Disorder Induced by Childhood Trauma) in which we're privileged to see rare archival footage from the renowned (but fictitious) Groat Center for Sleep Disorders. The sensual film Horses never die delves into the mythic concept of metamorphosis; issues of birth, development, and renewal are ignited through movement. Motion control takes one glamorous and aging dancer, traps her in the real world, then smashes into her private reality, and tries to control her movement, contain her emotion, while she already has you beaten in this bizarre journey of entrapment. The Duchess is a psychological portrait of a lonely and demented aristocrat, who is filled with long repressed memories and conjured demons

Flesh and blood by Cholmondeleys( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Flesh and Blood (Anderson, 1989) is a re-working of stage the production by The Cholmondeleys. Through close up camera work, this film version allows the exploration of the emotional and the spiritual through small, detailed choreography that would be otherwise lost on stage, such as a gesture of a finger or the tilt of the head which resonate with the imagery of the work. Filmed both on location and in a studio, the film offers a different experience to the stage production. This film was the first collaboration between choreographer Lea Anderson and Margaret Williams, who then went on to make such films as Cross Channel and Perfect Moment."--From National Resource Centre for Dance website
