Reprise

Reprise is a solo dance piece for film, choreographed and performed by Lynn Seymour.

She dances to the piano version of Ravel's 'Pavane pour une infante défunte', which, composed in 1899, recalls the Spanish custom of solemn ceremonial dance at times of mourning. Her dance is one of desolation, a sadness expressed and then reconciled, as if evoked by the room itself. Subsequently she sees herself leave, her image reflected and fragmented in the mirrored door.

Performed and choreographed by Lynn Seymour
Camera: Belinda Parsons
Director/editor: Jayne Parker
Produced by Sally Thomas, Maya Vision International.
