Jump Cut #2CA/QC+QC/FR
Jump Cut is a six-part cable-access-style web series of streamed collaborations between multidisciplinary international artists. Conceived by Dana Gingras/Animals of Distinction as a way to survive and thrive in these times, Jump Cut is an opportunity to curate an unpredictable encounter between artists who are currently working in isolation. Each episode will feature a unique combination of artists to create a multi-disciplinary collaboration that will only be accessible as a unique on line experience.
The second episode for the series features Montréal based electronic musician Marie Davidson, Paris based Canadian video artist Sabrina Ratté and Montréal based choreographer/dancer Dana Gingras. Treating the body like a living sculpture, the emphasis is on capturing the minutiae of movement and morphing the human body back and forth between a virtual body. This dialogue is coupled with sound to create a sense of an altered corporeal reality.
The Jump Cut series is co commissioned by CTM Festival in Berlin, an internationally recognized platform for adventurous music and art.
