Modus Operandi/Dance

Single-channel video, 2015, 3:00

A dance makes you happy no matter whether you are dancing in Madrid, in Moscow or in Livorno; whether you are dancing in 2015 or in 1957.
Footage shot in Madrid, Moscow and Bikovo by chance was used in this video as well as exerts from Le Notti Bianche by Luchino  Visconti and The Birds by Alfred Hitchcock.

From the series "M.O.". Modus Operandi (M.O.) is a Latin fraise used to describe a method of operating and people’s behavioral patterns. It is not always possible for an outside observer to grasp the logic of others’ behavior. Their actions assume the nature of the mysterious ambiguity that is open for any interpretation.


Music: Bill Haley & His Comets, Thirteen Women (And Only One Man In Town).
