ENDE (Like a New Beginning) & ENDE (Like a New Beginning) Footnote

Emily Mast (USA)

Loosely based on personal texts written by the artist that were translated into gestures by performers, this video examines the moment, how moment becomes memory, and how memory becomes a sort of malleable or fragile “fact”. Exploring the underlying complexities of language, translation, memory and miscommunication, this piece uncovers the profundity of the seemingly mundane and uses repetition and familiarity to incite instants of human connection. The performers’ body language is accentuated by rhythmic film editing that exposes a cinematic vocabulary that is both fluent and fluid. This video is shown together with ENDE (Like a New Beginning) Footnote.
