Figs in Motion

Figs in Motion by Trevor Anderson.JPG

2010 - 8 minutes

Two men become six ballerinas and several horses in a bestial, impromptu corps de ballet. A riff on the imagery of Edgar Degas and the photography of Eadweard Muybridge.

Commissioned by the Art Gallery of Alberta in celebration of their grand reopening.

‘Figs in Motion’ is such an unexpected crowd-pleaser, a slowly developing chuckle - the audience loved it.
