Match Box Dances is a short, four-part dancefilm shot on the streets, sidewalks and loading docks of DUMBO, one of New York’s most quickly changing neighborhoods. The product of an inter-disciplinary collaboration, Match Box Dances is a snapshot of ongoing investigations of portraiture in dance on camera. The project explores the intersection of public, private and personal gestures, while employing a creative and technical regard to immediacy similar to that of an instant Polaroid: The content, creation and production arise necessarily ‘of-the-moment’, and produce an artifact that functions as both document and art object.
