Open Form by M.Lohrum X Calvin Richardson

Open Form is a collaboration between visual artist M.Lohrum and dancer and choreographer Calvin Richardson exploring the intersection between dance and performative drawing. Filmed by Ray Moody, the short film captures the two artists exploring the potential of their bodily gestures as well as the resulting marks in a kind of ‘open  form’. The piece investigates perception and the limitations of the body, as well as understanding dance as a form of corporal expression without the need to necessarily create ‘beautiful’ shapes, but rather explore the possibilities of movement. At the same time, drawing here is used as a way to record a trace of these movements, without pretending to represent a pre-defined ‘figure’. The film is accompanied by the song Aeolus, Keeper of the Winds, composed and performed by Quinta.
