choreography on film #6

last night i watched Park Chan-Wook’s genre-bending masterpiece – Thirst.

its basically a horror movie, but avoids all the standard horror movie cliches and conventions, replacing them with beautiful photography, subtle comedy, ambiguous narrative and gorgeous music.

this is my favourite scene where the priest has just discovered his vampirical immortality, and then spots his childhood sweetheart on one of her nocturnal barefoot runs.

creative factotum based in northern Finland. exactly one half of a company that fuses technology with the moving body to make dance work. i use cameras and computers and projectors and lights and sound to make magic spaces for people to dance in. and i don't much care for capital letters.
