Shortly after releasing InnerSpace Revisited we were approach by Corrine Leland of Timeolive to see if we’d make her a video for their track ‘Dancing Solo’ … so we sat on the idea for a few weeks, mulled-over a couple of treatments and then got in-touch with our friends over at La Vida Vintage – a wonderful little retro-café just down the road. The source footage was shot over two lunchtime sessions on days when the café was closed, taking us about 3 hours in total. As usual, our equipment is pretty modest – a sony cx305 camcorder and a canon d500 dslr shooting at 1080i/25 and 720p/30 respectively so a little juggling was required in editing. All-in it took us something like 4 full days worth of editing time to get the feel right : we’d known from the start we wanted a desaturated and detached feel to echo the song, and that there’d be some of our fragmentation processing involved in the final product. After a bit of to-and-fro and a couple of days rendering effects we were pretty much ready to publish … and then the micro-tweaks came-in : subtle adjustments made to colour and movement as well as adjustments to the timing of the edits to hopefully have none of the shots break the affect of the finished item.
We very much hope you enjoy it !

“IN-ner Space revisited”
Abandoned place with layers of colour : each room a different silent story.
The wind comes in through broken windows as outside birds are singing.
Inside : I hear my breath, my steps.
I am alone here and my heart beats fast so I dance.
I dance with my fears. Fears from a past I (never) lived” Fenia
This work is a site specific improvised performance for camera made in Beelitz- Heilstaetten, TB clinic and sanatorium turned military hospital where both Hitler and Honecker were patients. Now an abandoned, haunting, eerie place; shrouded in mystery, occupied by the accumulated memories of thousands of patients. The dance is a spontaneous reaction to the fragmented memories hidden within the walls and the effects both a metaphor and communications channel for the myriad distressed psyches informing the performance.
