Him and his forest of all hues / Screendance (2019)
How much we can see of a person through the labyrinth of his heart?
This is a bold attempt to choreograph through digital editing and re-composition of images. A song from a man trapped in the city, longer for the beauty of nature.
“An excellent film. The work is quirky and unusual. John Cleverly plays with scale in a way that is disorienting and surprising. His film has an oneiric quality. It is mesmerizing and gives us space to think and feel.” – Gabriela Tropia, Brazilian dance filmmaker and lecturer, The Place, Passion For Freedom Arts Festival award-winner, Sadler’s Wells, T.H.E
Ghost and John went on a 10-day photography and videography trip to Marseille in March 2019. This screendance is one of the artworks produced through this journey.
