Niels filmed dancers Danae and Dionysios at the Melina Mercouri Theatre in Athens during September 2017 following many conversations to understand the ideas and emotions they wished to convey. A 4am wake up, crisp morning air and equipment failure which meant Niels had to film without a monitor (quite challenging given the one-shot filming and very delicate focus around the camera’s darting gazes meant to emulate those of a wild animal) kept everyone on their toes and possibly enhanced the atmosphere. A giant tortoise which kept crossing behind the stage seemed to approve. The final video was the result of many further conversations and experiments with editing styles and image manipulation to get to something that felt true to the nature of the piece.
