ABOUT THE FILM: “Strata” is a dance film exploring use of layered camera work to choreograph close spatial proximity of dancers not physically possible during COVID-19. The film was shot with no more than two dancers on set at one time, and one dancer was filming remotely in another state.  All proximal spatial relationships of the dancers’ bodies were “choreographed” in the editing process with frame layering. The film medium allowed Pruitt to explore spatial relationships digitally which are unable to exist live due to social distancing. The work explores the tension in being separated physically and emotionally from others while imagining a world of closeness and shared spaces of memory.
