Y Chwarelwr

Directed, Choreographed, performed and edited by: Wren Ball

Music by: Katherine Betteridge

Filming by SSP Media: Osian Williams & Matthew Harris

Special thanks goes to Sally Mees for creating the mask and Ceri Rimmer for making the hood.

 

Y Chwarelwr (The Quarrymen) was shot in the now abandoned Welsh Quarry of Dinorwic on an a wet and stormy day. The film explores the power of a mask and how the body reacts to a new set of circumstances in an unforgiving landscape. While wearing the mask my perception of reality was altered and a sense of claustrophobia was felt. Movement became animalistic and minimal which in turn brought about a new way of responding to the external space that was not bound by predetermined steps or sequences. During the editing I wanted to further the sense of an alternate reality by introducing dream like sequences and psychedelic imagery.

Collaboration between a choreographer and a writer can lead to the emergence of a large number of combinations. If sometimes the choreographer creates his dance around the work of an author, the writer can also choose dance as the subject of his text.
