Short dance movie by dancer/choreographer Jaap Flier.
An old dancer looks back at his life. He bows a hand, turns his torso. A virtuoso past shimmers subtly through. Without mirrors he watches himself: reflecting, moving. A small carpet is his own room and his stage, wherever he puts it.
Music: Jacob Lucas, Camera: Daniel Gallenkamp, Directed by Jellie Dekker.

An impression of a ballerina rehearsing. In the intimacy of the studio
she strives for perfection but gradually her focus is directed to the
sound of her point shoes. The image of timeless ethereal dance beauty
is attacked by the rawness of images, editing and music.
Camera: Daniel Gallenkamp, Sound design: Raven Bros, Choreography: Michael Schumacher.
Produced by The Dutch National Ballet, directed & edited by Jellie

Dick Lucas, Directed by Jellie Dekker
The film is based upon a music composition by Mayke Nas & Wouter Snoei, written for four percussionists, four chairs en four amplified black boards with interactive electronics.
The work derives from the theater text "Selbstbeschuldiging"by author Peter Handke. In a pages long summary of all kinds of bad habits, sins and misdemaenours, human morality is intrepidly dissected and anatomized.
Performed by Slagwerk Den Haag (The Hague Percussion), released on the DVD PARADE, directed & edited by Jellie Dekker.
