  • Boy. Rosemary Lee and Peter Anderson. UK (1995). 5′

Filmed on the coast or Norfolk, the film explores the imaginary, magical world of an eight year old boy who conjures up his imaginary twin. Rippling with animal imagery and shamanistic conjuring, it is about the boy’s perceptions of the world and his realisation of his own place in the universe

Directors: Rosemary Lee and Peter Anderson / Performer: Tom Evans / Costume: Louise Belson / Music: Graeme Miller

  • 46, Bis Rue de Belleville. Pascal Baes. Belgium (1988). 5′

46bis images seem to come out from an old movie, as if they had been found in a hidden trunk in the attic. Carefully, you put them on the projector and discover an incredible world. Two girls glide across the ground with the rythm of Arabic pop music. Projected images cause their movement.

Director: Pascal Baes / Choreography: Sarah Denzinot, Laurence Rondoni / Performers: Sarah Denisot, Laurence Rondoni / Music: Lili Boniche

  • Break. Billy Cowie and Liz Aggiss. UK (2005). 5′

In the wilderness of Dungeness, where the natural and the nuclear meet for small talk, Master Thomas is taking the air. As he rambles he spies something unusual and decides to investigate. Break (from the Middle English): 1 an interruption of continuity. 2 a short period of recreation or refreshment. 3 a tract of ground of distinct appearance. 4 an opportunity, a chance…

Directors and choreographers: Billy Cowie, Liz Aggiss / Performers: Thomas Kampe / Music: Billy Cowie

  • FF>> *. Tatiana Gentile, Letica Nabuco, Karenina de los Santos and Marcelo Stroppa. Brasil (2007). 6′

Difference and contrat of rhythms coexisting in harmony. Simple and constant movements covering a long way on different urban places/enviroments. Two people on a continuosly and uninterrumped flow, creating a strange dialogue with the time and the space.

  • Chámame. Silvina Szperling. Argentina (2008). 9′

In Chámame, a woman transmutes and allows herself to be carried away by the current of the Parná river. A chamaleonic woman who has the power to merge into the weeds and fish, and who becomes both the victim and the heroine of her story. As she travels downstream she comes into contact with natural forces, and the relationship between the body and nature becomes the focus of a work in which control, or the loss of control, over the elements act as triggers for fantasy, myth, and the absurd.

Director and choreographer: Silvina Szperling / Performers: Susana Szperling, Walter Ferreyra, Sebastian Bistolfi, Leylen Segundo, Valeria Martines, Gabriela Gobbi / Music: Alejandro Franov.

  • Montevideoaki!. Octavio Iturbe. Uruguay (2005). 5′

  • Diamond Dancers. Quirine Racké, Helena Muskens. The Netherlands (2010). 8′

A large group of line dancers travels to Amsterdam in a white tour bus to perform a flash mob in front of the Royal Palace at Dam Square. A flash mob is usually a surprise performance by young people, but now it is a group of elderly dancers who enjoy showing themselves to the passers-by and turn the expectations of the growing audience upside down.

  • Blink. Àlex Rademakers. Spain (2010). 7′

  • DIY. Royston Tan. Singapur (2005). 6′

Through out the island, different individuals are engaged in varying day-to-day activities and are caught up in their own thoughts; but they are all connected. In D.I.Y, the squeak of dirty plates, the tap of a finger against a seafood against a seafood restaurant aquarium, the thump of feet inside a cargo lift, and many other disparate sound, all come together into a quirky and funky piece of beat science, a human – and humane – music.

Direction: Royston Tan

  • Admit One. Steve Woods. Ireland (2010). 6′

Made for the Dance on the Box season on RTÉ. Filmed in the Light House Cinema, Dublin, Ireland. In Admit One, art confronts art when modern dance takes on cinema. The active energy of the dancer contrasts with cinema as passive escapism. The rigid awkwardness of the cinema audience is clear, or is it? Admit One uses the energy of modern dance to examine cinema as passive escapism.

Director: Steve Woods/ Producer: Catherine Lyons / Choreographer: John Scott (Irish Modern Dance Theatre) Camel Productions

  • Will Time Tell?. Sue Healy. Australia (2006). 12’30″

While travelling, one’ sense of time is often altered. A lady is involved in all sorts of shorts scenes far away from home. Will time tell her what she needs to know.
