Continuing her interest in choreographed movements in private and public space, Adelaide Bannerman presents works that (dis) orientate the narrativising modes of documentary and fiction. The programme will move from the exploration of movement through dance to address the editing techniques used by Charles Altas and Cecilia Bonilla. Here Atlas, working with choreographer, Karole Armitage, intersperses a docu-dramatic narrative amongst the choreographed sequences in Parafango (1983-4), and Bonilla creates a rhythmically disconcerting montage of commercial stills of women horse riding, Horse Riding (2008).
