SCOTTISH PREMIERE

Thursday 7th November, 18.30, Filmhouse

Dir: Siobhan Davies and David Hinton, 2012, 50 mins, UK

A flickering dance of intriguing imagery brings to light the possibilities of ordinary movements from the everyday which appear, evolve and freeze before your eyes. Made entirely from archive photographs and footage from the earliest days of moving image, All This Can Happen follows the footsteps of the protagonist from the short story The Walk by writer Robert Walser. Juxtapositions, different speeds and split frame techniques convey the walker's state of mind as he encounters a world of hilarity, despair and ceaseless variety.

Dance documentaries about the creative process usually take a formulaic approach. Introduce the company/artist, watch them create a piece, experience the trials and tribulation in the run up to the final performance (which you end up not seeing). Movement One is about a company making a dance film and uniquely, you see the full dance film at the end. And Ponydance The Movie? It’s pretty much the same, just not so serious….
