Re-presenting a dance moment

Main Article Content

Ashlee Barton


This visual essay deconstructs a four-second experience within a dance performance, In and out of time, which was performed at Dancehouse (Melbourne, AUS) in 2018. It captures the body’s movement as still moments and re-presents them through a tiled image and a video ‘flip-book’ work. Together with language, the visual essay aims to reveal how, over time, the memory of this experience has become magnified and thickened, drawing out new ways of knowing in relation to an embodied experience each time it is recollected.
