Abstract

My Culminating Honors project is rooted in two things I love and adore, film and dance. To execute both concepts together I have created a movement-based short film titled Put Together. The film follows a woman as she dances through the beginning and end of a relationship. This film is the story of a woman’s journey through love. Using movement parallels, this film shows how the body is influenced by different emotions. The dancer performs the same movements throughout the piece, but her emotional state influences how she moves. The purpose is to discover the light airy feelings of joy and the heavy weak feelings of loss, and how they affect the body. I want viewers to be entertained while also finding ways to relate to the film, whether that be emotional or physical.
