Round Dance

(VHS, Betacam, 15 min) 2002

I made a filming appointment with the residents of four houses on the grounds of the Dr. Dormagen-Guffanti Foundation in Cologne. In each case, two to three protagonists play in front of the camera, while including the performative situation in their actions.

The video is freely adapted from the play “Reigen” (Round dance) by Arthur Schnitzler, where A meets B, B meets C, C meets D, D meets A.
