Cath James' Pick for 2020 Vision #2
By Mary Fitzgerald and Eileen Standley
Vestiges is a dance film choreographed by Mary Fitzgerald and Eileen Standley in collaboration with dancers Taimy Miranda and Joan Rodriguez. Incorporating digital animation by Casey Farina and visceral camerawork by filmmaker Dmitri von Klein, this piece uses live performance, animation and film to map and transform the fleeting nature of movement.
Cath James says: "This new work captures some of the ephemeral quality of dance - the traces in the air that the moving body leaves behind. Particles disturbed, energy released then dissipating."
2020 Vision is our celebration of screen dance curated by the artists who will take part in the opening programme of The Dance Space next year, as well as the South East Dance team and our Welcome Project Community Steering Group.

We would really appreciate you taking time to complete this short survey on your experience of 2020 Vision. It's important to us to find out what you thought of the programme, so we can refine and tailor our programmes to what you want to see. We also have to report back to our funders, so we need as much feedback as possible for them. Once again, thanks for your time and attention.
Thanks to the generosity of our funders and supporters, we are delighted to share this content with you for free. As an arts charity, however, we have to continue to fundraise - not only to complete the build and fit-out of The Dance Space, but also to ensure that the positive impact of our work can be felt by more people across the South East region. Please give what you can; every donation, large or small, is welcome. Thank you.
