As part of the Visual and Performing Arts module we have started to explore how the human body can move and the marks that we can make through this movement.
Inspired by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s performance titled ‘Performance 13: On Line’. This is the piece in full by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker performed outside.’ we decided to try something similar out ourselves.
We used a sieve to sprinkle white flour on the ground and then invited members of the class to dance in this space.
The patterns that each person created were quite different from each other.
This is our version of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s performance to the music of Steve Reich – Violin Phase

In this video Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker talks about her performance and we get to see how it was performed for the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
In the next video you get to see the piece performed, in full, outside.
“I really enjoyed this project, it was something different and I had never done anything like this before. I felt like an ice skater leaving my mark behind.” – Maureen Rooney
“I loved dancing on the flour it was really, really different.” – John Meenan
