Dance Artem Ignatiev. Music Moontrip “New Composers.”
“For me the process of working together with a choreographer or a dancer is very important. When I feel some in his/her movements I try develop this later by editing. Usually I choose the location, shoot, then edit myself. The state of my images in self-completion and concentration and I try to transmit this through contemporary electronic music. Deformation is a play with a moving form, different emotions felt by a human being towards oneself, a kind of a dialog with self-rendered by the means of plastique”.

I try to transfer the subconscious into day-to-day life through the plasticity of motion, to reveal the hidden psychological processes. Dance and teamwork with the choreographer has become a fundamental element of my work. . In my films I address modern dance including it into daily environments as a contrasting element.
