TRIO

2018

OVERVIEW :

Trio is a compilation of 3 otherworldly visions performed by 3 dancers entitled Sense, Attention and Inflection. Trio explores 3 metaphorical characters who intersect in stories told through gestures, body and sound.

BIOGRAPHY :

As a Canadian multi-disciplinary artist, John is based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. His ever-broadening art practice spans many media including experimental film. His 7 independent short films have been screened at over 100 film festivals worldwide in 24 countries and have won several awards.

DIRECTOR STATEMENT :

Much of contemporary culture denies mythical nature of dream visions even though these phenomena are ever present in the unconscious. Conceived as a poetic laboratory, this short video interrelates conscious awareness and the enigmatic realm of the subconscious. This work is inspired by the notion that dreams know the truth of the world. The experience of this work is not intended to appeal to the conscious mind, but to challenge it.
