Bodies in Motion

A Dance Between the Built Environment and Wilderness

"Painted" is the first in a trilogy of screendance films about a tug-of-war with wilderness. This particular film explores a building’s decay. The choreography and original score are both in decrescendo to illustrate the building’s retreat from the physical world, and nature's advance on it.

Directed by Duncan McDowall. Choreographed and Performed by Dorotea Saykaly. See more of McDowell's work here.
