Dancer and Choreographer Tuur Marinus
created the choreography "Still Animals".
Dancers dressed in skin-tones interact with dancers in dressed in black, to create displays of seemingly mechanized movement.
The result is eerily similar to Eadweard Muybridge photography and classic didactic museum displays of animal movement. Poetry in motion.
For the 2016 edition of Brussels "Nuit Blanche
" Culture festival, excerpts from this extraordinary choreography were performed as installations in the Brussels Natural Sciences Museum.
Amidst the Bernissart Iguanodons and other dinosaur displays, the installation blends in perfectly for an unforgettable "Night at the Museum".
Included are my impressions (with Voigtländer and Rokinon bright aperture, manual focus lenses). I include also a few short video snippets (with apologies for my horrible lack in video skills...).
