Dance ‘Til Your Heart’s Content

As part of Glasgow’s Merchant City Festival 2011 Vito Dance Theatre was funded by Glasgow Life to create 3 new screendance works. Vito Dance Theatre collaborated with film artist  Louise Mather and field recordist and composer Keith Beattie to creating an original piece.

What was produced was three eye catching dance films: Morning, Noon and Night. Each dancer’s improvised movements and feelings were influenced by their surroundings and time of day. They danced away ’til their heart’s content’. The music for each dance film was created using field recordings from each film location alongside composed music which was created afterwards in the recording studio.
