A Resource for Performing Artists, Scholars and Audiences.
The work is presented as a choreographical action in a number of photo shots (30), in an specific interval of time (from 8 to 9 am on May 15, 2010) in a public park
A dancer with a yellow dress, similar of Merce Cunningham stage costumes, and a plastic mask with the face of Michael Jackson performs movements, postures
and balance games for the camera
The images came from a reflection on the meaning of dance and the relationship that can exist with the static nature of photography, trying to generate
a sort choreography for the photocamera.
Dance does not exist as position, but exists as transition and movement,
it lives in the moment and every gesture erase the previous.
Thinking about the formalism of Cunningham creations where movement itself is the principal subject matter of his dances, I wanted to contrast ironically another figure
who revolutionized the world of dance in a completely different way, the figure most imitated of all times for his dance quality, a kind of dynamic image
that have involved millions of people.
