Empty space, a human body, and 8 articles of clothing. FAUX SOLO explores the dialogue and collaboration made between the body, sound, clothing and space. Each article of clothing dictates the next move into the unknown space, becoming acquainted with the space with each accumulated piece. The sounds emphasize the impact of the colliding costumes and contrasts to the space surrounding it. It attempts to accent the feel of each moment, while supporting the shape of the entire piece as a whole. Simultaneously, the body is on view yet it is also the tool for manipulating the clothing and environment – the subjective/objective, personal/public is continually emphasized and revealed.
This film was made possible and commissioned by Festival of Recorded Movement (FORM 2016).
Premiered in June of 2016 at the FORM festival.
