This animation explores the themes of depression and disconnected relationships within Tessa Violet’s ‘Haze’. The work explores a unique method of choreography, assembling and transforming the movement of dancers through rotoscoping to create a full performance that exists only through translation. The animation comprises of over 1,800 frames monoprinted by hand, with the noise and distortion of the prints evoking the inescapable haze experienced by the piece’s protagonist. The animation is accompanied by textile prints that give the frames a decorative context evoking the flowing movement of the fabric worn by the dancers.
