Chromatic Variations is a short dance film that brings together several distinct studies exploring the sensory and affective relations between bodies, material, light, and colour. Progressing from abstract imagery to sculptural scenography, the movement from variation to variation offers a constantly shifting perspective on a common set of raw materials, developed through an experimental and playful in-studio process over the course of shooting. In production, we were inspired by the physicality and unpredictability of practical effects and process-filmmaking. Drawing inspiration from the Romantic-era landscapes of J. M. W. Turner, Mark Rothko’s colour-fields, and psychedelia, the film asks viewers to tune in to minute variations in touch, awareness, and texture- an intensity and scope of sensation akin to feeling the hairs on the back of one’s neck stand up.

“Kaddume” is an expedition that recognizes San Basilio de Palenque’s past and future relationships. It’s a look to and from the body, the land they live in and the voice of their female ancestors. The same ones that opened new paths in search of freedom. This dance is a new approach through rhythm and movement, to that strength and wisdom. It is an homage of these girls, not professional dancers, to that empowered walk of freedom that still lives in their bodies.
