  • Rosalie

  • Artist: Kaija Pepper
  • Year: 1978
  • Duration: 4:06
  • Country: Canada
  • A response to the mournful song by Brian Eno, the dancer (Pepper) takes control of the depiction of the titular Rosalie through her relationship to the camera.  She explores how a solo dance performance is choreographed for the camera as well as for the space of a TV screen.   The dance was created through editing and shot blocking of the physical shapes made by her body, a then-radical approach to choreopgrahing the body and face in a relationship to technology.

    The performance was filmed at Cable 10 Studio; MTV would launch a few years later.
