Abstract

iOrgan is a choreographic film by Camila Rivero-Pooley in five movements. Her stated intention was to visually render an ‘Eastern Philosophy inspired’ dialogue between the body and the “I”, or a perception of self. This interaction would produce conceptual gaps where movement could be perceived at times as mere behavioural pattern (presumably ‘Samskara’ or traces of conditioned existence), as opposed to purposeful action. The aim would be to achieve a representation of the experience of nothingness (emptiness). My personal take on this light exposition of duality as found in traditional Indian Philosophies such as Samkya and Yoga, was to complement the visual through sound signifiers of ritual, trance, meditation and direct musical emphasis of action.
