Watermotor for Dancer and Camera

  • Cite

Summary
In "Watermotor for Dancer and Camera," Trisha Brown executes a solo in slow motion. Video artist Peter Campus did the camera work. In the editing two takes -- one from the front and one from the side -- were slow-motioned and superimposed. The superimposition was done "on the fly" bringing one or the other take to more prominence as it went along.

"Watermotor for Dancer and Camera" was originally created for "Frames of Reference: Dancing on the Edge" and appears as a segment in that work. It also appears in "Alive From Off Center: Solos, Duets, and Pizza," a dance special.
