This screendance is the first collaboration of Ana Baer and Heike Salzer, exploring site-specific choreography and screendance making via an improvised collaborative process. Filmed at the rail line at San Marcos Texas, the video presents a piece of embodied consciousness that is triggered by the shared experience of the site. A story unfolds via the phenomenological exploration of ‘being in the moment at a site’ sharing an experience in time and space. What happens in this shared adventure is communicated via the edited version of the screendance accompanied by an original score by American composer Jeff Mohler.
