Some of my work over the past years has focused on minimal movement.  My view regarding the power of that which is minimal has been reinforced by research, the application of ideas and the results from previous research.  For me minimal movement is internal movement, internal action or intensity and how everything doesn’t necessarily have to entail external action.  Even total lack of movement indicates conflicts and concerns.  When I create a video work, for the most part I am creating videodance.  I am not documenting, I am making dance for the camera.  I choreograph a piece knowing that I will reorganize and ‘manipulate’ the material during editing.  I am using the elements of time, space, speed, and spatial composition.  Even though the body in movement is the seed and inspiration of the screendance, often the movement phrases get thrown around so the end becomes the beginning, the dancer gets fragmented or superimposed into different backgrounds.  I am trying to create a visual metaphor using narrative and location.
