Running In O&R
1975, 10:47 minutes, B&W, No language
This video is a demo for the film Running In O&R. The piece was first called Basic Running Sets and Retrogrades, having evolved from Prime and Retrograde Walks. As in the walking piece, the runners kept in step, but used their natural strides. Consequently, they advanced at different rates, though synchronized.
“Perhaps the greatest pleasure for the viewer of the film Running In O&R lies in the combination of attractive people engrossed in precise body movements. This intense physicality is beautifully sustained in the skillful textured photography and the oh-so-right rhythm of running feet. It is a movement from theatre to film.”
-Dance and Film, Ian Birnie, Art Gallery of Ontario
Running In O&R was the start of a series of running-based pieces which culminated as Crash Points — a choreographed, noncompetitive track-and-field performance.
Re-mastered in 2014.
