Dervish 2


Camera: Willson Barber Performer: Amy Greenfield

Premiere: The Kitchen Center For Video, Music and Dance

One of the first experimental videodance tapes made.
" Extraordinary! In Amy Greenfield's Dervish, a nude woman whirled continuously till exhausted#the only sounds were the motion of her feet, the rustle and flap of drapery, and the increasingly labored rhythm of her breathing. Images were superimposed and dramatic patterns of light and form appeared with repeated close-ups of her body."
- Carol Zemel, Arts Canada.

" Within a minimalist aesthetic context, Amy Greenfield's videotape transmits kinesthetic activity as pulses of pure energy acting immediately on our nerves, expanding our awareness."
- Richard Lorber, Arts In Society.
