An avant-garde dance film that takes the audience into the performance.

The film explores the artistic influences of memories and the creative opportunities that appear when film, dance and visual art, in the form of projected still and moving images, come together. Using a combination of archival film footage and recreated footage as projections, the dancer enters the dark space of the room, representing her mind, as she journeys through the projected images, representing her memories, of the time leading up to and around her life where she became very ill and eventually wheelchair bound. Within the film she dances and interacts with the projected memories and the camera, creating an avant-garde dance film.

The work investigates how the camera can dance with the dancer when producing a dance film. Looking at how the choreographic process changes when choreographing for multiple screens, the screen of the camera, the screen of the projections, and the screen of the dancer, her body as canvas. Looking at a time in her life where she was wheelchair bound and her recovery and rehabilitation in relearning how to walk, she dances with her memories.
