Adelyn Hopper’s “Interior” Exclusive Video Premiere

For two years, Emily Terndrup and Derrick Belcham have been creating dance-based music videos for artists like Marissa Nadler and My Brightest Diamond in the months between developing their multimedia dance theater productions at the Knockdown Center (Debut and The Wilder Papers infused with a comprehensive dance film presence in their own right).

Their films frequently feature members of New York City companies like Gallim Dance, Shen Wei Dance Arts and Punchdrunk’s Sleep No More, Terndrup a former company member of the former and a current cast member of the latter, and Belcham a collaborator of NYC dance mainstays Melanie MaarBeth GillEmery LeCrone and Miguel Gutierrez.

In the last month, they have produced videos for White Prism (a dark, strobing performance by Sarah Stanley, Ashley Robicheaux and Oliver Hornsby-Sayer set in a black vacuum) and BLKKATHY (a black widow narrative depicting a woman’s laissez-faire attitude towards interpersonal relationships that leaves half of the city’s dance community dead on the floor of a Brownstone).

Today they release their film for Adelyn Hopper’s “Interior”, a black and white piece centering a performance by Rebecca Margolick (of Sidra Bell Dance NY) between the worlds of figure and ground, her relationship to both transforming fluidly as the film progresses. Elements of Belcham’s macrophotography films with Ruby Kato Attwood add a layer of visual interference to the piece that Terndrup and Margolick take hold of and manipulate with choreographic sensibility, extending the relationship of the foreground elements to the movement.
