Atan (2007)

Atan, a traditional dance performed in the Northwest Frontier Province in Pakistan, is transformed in this short experimental video. Rather than constructing a narrative experience of the dance, this video captures the dynamism of the people performing it. This piece creates a sense of movement and rhythm of its own by using split screen techniques and by slowing down the sound and image.
