Of space and time: film and the female performer

College: Central Saint Martins
Supervisor: Professor Caroline Evans

Introduction

The project examines early twentieth-century female performance, including the work of Loie Fuller and water tank acts. I aim to reconfigure these performances through my practice, in order to represent the dancer’s subjective experience of time and space.

Aims and objectives

The project aims to investigate the possibility of representing a female space and time through a visual evocation of interiority and female subjectivity by meeting the following objectives:

  • Firstly, explore the ways in which filmic technique can be used to represent time and perception
  • Secondly, create a form of ‘haptic cinema’ that provides a visual evocation of interiority and female subjectivity
