Motion for Stockhausen

Motion for Stockhausen

Anouk De Clercq

video, b/w, 4:3, no sound, BE, 2000, 11'

Conceived originally as a backdrop projection for the dance performance Chorée, this video is in itself a study on choreography. The image source is the oldest belgian film footage, Film Médicaux (1904) shot by Arthur Van Gehuchten, belgian anatomist, neurologist and pioneer of clinical cinematography. The movements of hysterical patients are carefully reframed in a dignifying way.
Motion for Stockhausen was initially made as a part of Chorée, a dancepiece produced by Le Bureau des Arts with a choreography of Johanne Saunier and lighting by Jim Clayburg, with music by James Dillon performed by Garth Knox and music by Karlheinz Stockhausen and Renaud De Putter performed by Stephan Ginsburgh.
