House that Jack Built
DANCE FOR SCREEN
House That Jack Built was a first experiment in making screendance. It explored time, cumulative narrative, memory and this idea of ‘searching for one’s roots’. A journey into notions of diversity by creating a relationship to space, building a ‘home’ for a nomadic artist; singing one’s self into being.
Using the Old English rhyme The House That Jack Built, this short film explores and exposes the self as a thing folding into and out of its environment.
Music and camera: Tobias Sturmer
