MeM#3 —3) No sé qué es videodanza (Nayeli Benhumea. México.) 5:25 min. from Movimiento en Movimiento on Vimeo.
No sé qué es videodanza. (I do not know what videodance is.)
“For this piece I worked with the idea of starting from a non preconceived videodance stance, it is, denying myself what videodance is. The only condition for this study was: I danced in front of the camera, maintaining a mirror relationship with the lens and based on the idea that the camera is an extension of my body. ”
