Paper State

Watch Paper State short Film, developed with the support of Dance4Camera3, an initiative run by Welsh Independent Dance at Newport International Film School. The soundtrack features on the B side of a new release ‘Into the Dark’ by composer Sion Orgon.

The movement explored the solitude and ritual of someone waiting to move on and was initially inspired by the remaining residents, squatters and imagined characters of a derelict estate.

The main character moves without sight, on a floor covered with tiny paper squares cut from newspapers. Using tiny scissors, the performer cuts into sheets of newspaper, in an attempt to communicate her feelings.
