Choreography and performance Simon Whitehead.A cinematic rendition of Whiteheads’ live performance work ‘Studies for Maynard’. Ambiguous relationships to gravity, location and object as seen in Syeds earlier films, are explored to poignant effect. Whiteheads leaning towards pedestrian movement, and his conversation with a weathered school table moves us through a percussive and ever shifting orientation. Here the physical immediacy of performance meets the proximity of the camera’s eye and its desire to bring us closer.
