Witness - Portraits of Women Who Dance
An invitation to witness three exceptional dancers as they explore the making of their own choreographic portraits.
Dancers Ino Riga, Eeva-Maria Mutka and Annabeth Berkeley generously share their practices and processes and explain who they are and what dance is to them.
Witness is a dance film installation that explores self image, the body and asks, what is performance and what is real life.
The unique performances that result are both elaborate and supremely personal: as idiosyncratic as the women who dance them.
Four attempts of excellence, intimacy and honesty in performance.
Choreographer and Director Jo Fong
Filmmakers and Editing Filipe Alcada and Dawn Collins
Dancers and Choreography Ino Riga, Eeva-Maria Mutka and Annabeth Berkeley
Ino Riga "Theatre is a rehearsed life, pre-planned, you know your role."
Eeva-Maria Mutka "Is this dancing?"
Annabeth Berkley "You can't always say the truth, sometimes you have to pretend."
