Choros experiments with the historical beauty of chronophotography, where the simplest of movements become stretched, extrapolated, echoed, and decayed in a single passing moment. Created and directed by Michael Langan and Terah Maher. Like watching the waves in the ocean.

More official details can be read as follows:

“A chorus of women are borne from the movements of a single dancer in this dreamlike pas de trente-deux.

In the tradition of Marey and McLaren, Michael Langan and Terah Maher combine music, dance, and image multiplication to create a film that enhances our perception of motion. “CHOROS” delivers a visually mesmerizing narrative in three movements, following a dancer’s (Maher) experience of discovery, euphoria, and rebirth through this surreal phenomenon. Featuring music from Steve Reich’s “Music for 18 Musicians.”
