9 Variations on a Dance Theme

  • Cite

Summary
A female dancer repeats a short dance theme nine times to a soundtrack of piano and flute. As she performs the theme, the dancer is shot from different angles to yield nine variations. The first variations are composed of longer shots that capture the body and movements of the dancer in full. These variations are accompanied by a soundtrack of slow-tempo piano. The later variations are composed of many shorter shots that capture the components of the dancer's body and movements. These variations are accompanied by an increasingly up-tempo soundtrack of piano and flute. Little credit information is provided.
