Polar Film Lab presents at AMIFF a cinema live performance by Britt Al-Busultan.
Razzle Dazzle is a live cinema performance by Britt Al-Busultan with live sound Greg Pope, for two 16mm projectors, handmade film loops, mirrors and assorted objects. By moving the projectors around in front of the audience, a continuously shifting site specific spatial and immersive environment is created, with the intention to make it difficult to estimate the targets range, speed and heading. Flickering reflections create the experience of becoming absorbed into, or mixed up with, the physical space around, the perception of being physically present in a non-physical world.
The work of Britt Al-Busultan (née Kootstra) shows itself as “tableaux vivants,” and manifests as hand-processed analog films, film installations and live cinema performances in which seemingly everyday places and events separate themselves from our world. She currently works and lives in Övermalax, Finland, where she founded the artist-run film lab Filmverkstaden.
After dabbling in punk rock bands and absurdist performance, he founded film collective ‘Situation Cinema’ (Brighton 1986) and ‘Loophole Cinema’ (London, 1989). Working collaboratively and individually, Pope has made video installations, live art and single screen film works since 1996. These works include live cinema performance pieces as well as 35mm film productions and slide projection performances.
