TD_Nasty (ft. Clara La San) 'Where U Wanna Be' by Fiona Jane Burgess
Fiona Jane Burgess directs a minimal sensory dance film for TD_Nasty.
Burgess explores vulnerability in this clip by forcing her subject to dance without sight - relying only on touch to improvise a dance routine in unfamiliar territory. The result is an eerie, voyeuristic look at the adaptation of the senses. Burgess puts us directly in the room with her by keeping the video to a single, unbroken take. As uncomfortable as it is beautiful to watch.
FIONA JANE BURGESS:
“For this video, I was interested in working within a set of limitations. By taking away a dancer’s sight we make them vulnerable to the space, relying predominantly on their sense of touch, and sound. This video is about strength in the face of vulnerability. It is about being unafraid of failure. It is about how sometimes, taking risks can offer freedom.”
