The Creation Of The Universe

The Winter Circus in Liège, Belgium, is a round brick building with a roof made of skylights. Its splendid architecture creates an atmosphere of air and space and offers beautiful analogies to ”The Creation Of The Universe".

The ”main characters” of the video are oranges, suspended on blue strings, swinging to and fro, creating time and space for dances to unfold.

A woman in a red dress is running down a stairway. Then another. And another. And one more ... different women, different dresses, different stairways. All of a sudden: twenty of them together on one huge flight of stairs, running down, down, down.
The theme and its variations are simple but make a strong visual and rhythmical impact.
Repetition, variation, accumulation and sudden shifts in the storyline create a breathtaking short film.

GRETCHEN CASTING

Produced for Goethe's 250th Birthday, this project began as 12 young German women committed Goethe's ”Gretchen-Monolog” (of Faust) to memory. They then chose scenery and costume and were videotaped as a ”reversed casting” in their chosen surroundings. Afterwards, the recorded scenes were cross-edited and the result became a wild mixture of Rock n’ Roll, romantic, weird images and experimental theatre.
