Today the talented Gemma Crowe stepped into our improv project to film some of the findings. Even though it was 39 degrees outside, we managed to do 3 hours of filming at the lovely 45 West Hastings studio, run by Future Leisure.
Among the tasks/ideas Deanna and I have been exploring, I enjoyed adding in the new prompt of a camera to “up the ante” so to speak and work with an audience’s gaze. It’s fun to play with framing the gaze through being inside/outside the actual frame or using body parts to “frame” the viewer’s perspective.
Today wraps up my mentorship grant with Deanna, and over the year I have learnt so much. She is a thoughtful and generous outside eye and she’s encouraged me in many ways, both in my dancing and life as an artist.
