LineDance for Norman MacLaren

In Terry Flaxton’s LineDance for Norman MacLaren, dancers whirl around the screen, abstracted by camera effects so that shoe buckles and skirt hems are exaggerated and the dancefloor becomes a field of pixels.

The piece is inspired by Norman McLaren’s 1968 work Pas de Deux. It celebrates the way the human body describes movement; the paths of the dancers make familiar patterns that we recognise in the world around us. There's also a pleasing description through the line the dancers take that plays with the frame.
