Dir: Eric Paré, 8 mins 3 secs, 2013, Canada, EUROPEAN PREMIERE

Screened as part of Is It Dance? programme

This is the story of how I managed to take half a million pictures of contemporary dancers in the dark using light-painting, stop-motion and bullet-time techniques.

LightSpin is an experimental photography and art project that finds its source in a unique light painting technique.

Performers are improvising contemporary dance movements at the center of a ring on which 24 cameras are mounted.

Their brief dances are carried out in pitch darkness, light being aimed at the subjects as to reveal their shapes and movements, thus capturing their passage in a defined space.

Dancers: Angie Cheng, Coralie Muroni, Cori Kresge, Daphnée Laurendeau, Dylan Crossman, Erin Poole, Esther Rousseau-Morin, Kim Henry, Leon Kupferschmid, Lucie Vigneault, Margie Gillis, Maria Simone, Merryn Kritzinger, Michael Watts, Paul-André Fortier, Simon Xavier Lefebvre

Project made with the help of Nicolas Foisy, Stéphane Hoareau, Ronin Jah, Jeremy Lloubes, Coralie Muroni, Jean-François Sarrazin

Original LightSpin music composed and performed by Eric Paré and Marie-Ève Scarfone
