The animated work 1180 AND MORE investigates the connection between dance and visual art, in which their property get inverted through their use in time. Drawing and dance meet to generate a dialogue between staticity (single images) and movement (successions of images). A succession of images, apparently different from each other, are used to create the movement itself.

Back·wash [backward flow or movement of water or air produced by a propelling force]. This is the story of a man and a woman. A Danse Macabre unfolding in a world where common reality and the realm of myth are blurring. This is the story of a man and a woman, whose alter-egos – caught up in a limbo and no-man’s land – wait, stuck on river Styx.

Country: United Kingdom

Duration: 4 min

A friend, a colleague and two brothers. For the first time they meet for a collaboration. They create impressions of their synergy. Sustained and fluid interactions take place, through dancing and filming. Changing the surface beneath them with and without water, they find reciprocity in this audacious series of abstractions.

A Solas

Country: Spain

Duration: 5 min

The way in which we are involuntarily spewed into life condemns us to wander within the loneliness, locked within a face and a body that is no more than the result of a random and unique biological compendium something without essence, without a soul, a container of physiological attitudes that cradle the protoillusion of the “I”. Now, homeless and elusive we will try to find the way to fill this container through our experiences, assuming the psychic capacity that we have to project ourselves into the real world at every instant.

“In the city of Valdrada, everything exists in the same way as the exact opposit of it.” (Italo Calvino, “invisible Cities”). Opposits exist both in the interior and in the exterior of places. What is left on the space once we abandon it?

Dance video about Iron Skulls Co, a group of people with different preferences and journeys that set a way together, beyond the dance.
A union that feeds with their differences, and strengthens of their individual experiences.
The video is a personal interpretation of a project that I’ve seen grow and evolve over the years.
A transition between the dances, that has established itself as a fresh and inspiring proposal.

Shot with prisoners, Il Grido Mio positions them in a “white” background that eliminates the possibility of placement and uses “nudity” to erase the physical characteristic. The viewer will not see the prisoner, but the man.


ETCHED Still doreen
Video Authors: Dylan Quinn & Róisín Loughrey

Production: Dylan Quinn Dance Theatre

Country: Northern Ireland

Duration: 4 min

ETCHED grew out of a series of classes that had been running on a weekly basis as part of an Arts and Older Peoples project in 2015. The dancers are members of the community who attended a one hour weekly contemporary dance class over a 4 month period. The film was recorded in a variety of locations selected by the performers, and present a short sequence of movement learnt during their class.

TDP’s selection of dance videos collected through an international open call. Theses short films reflect the infinite possibilities of merging the choreographic language with the syntax of cinema - a specific genre with a very broad palette of colours.
