Three Dance Pieces: Blue Dance, Sankai Juku, Maasai

Jane Thorburn

1983, 50:00 minutes, colour, English


"Blue Dance" is a unique combination of dance and computer generated graphics. The dancer's movements were improvised to the computer overlay in real time. The music was composed by David Cunningham.
"Sankai Juku" is a Japanese Buto dance group who perform their extraordinary dance amongst the dark gigantic, redundant ironworks of Battersea Power Station.
"Maasai" - "Pages from the Book of Rain" is a piece especially choreographed by Gary Hurst. Shot on location it is a symbolic tale of tribal fears and aspirations.
