Details

In this film, I have attempted to place a dancer in a limitless, cinematographic space. Moreover, he shares, with the camera, a collaborative responsibility for the movements themselves. This is, in other words, a dance which can exist only on film... The movement of the dancer creates a geography that never was. With a turn of the foot, he makes neighbors of distant places. Being a film ritual, it is achieved not in spatial terms alone, but in terms of a time created by the camera. - Maya Deren on A Study in Choreography for the Camera, 1945 In her approach we have the beginnings of a virtually new artform of 'choreocinema' in which the dance and the camera collaborate on the creation of a single work of art. - John Martin, New York Times, 1946 This DVD contains: A Study In Choreography For The Camera, 1945, 2 min 30 sec - Choreography and dance: Talley Beatty. Ritual In Transfigured Time, 1945-46, 16 min - With Deren, Rita Christiani, Frank Westbrook, Anais Nin. Meditation On Violence, 1948, 13 min - With Ch'ao Li Chi, Chinese flute and Haitian Drumn arr.
