Dance

Between November 2018 and May 2019, Benjamin collaborated with the Actual Size Dance Company for a contemporary dance performance entitled ‘Per Form’ which took place on the 11th of May 2019 in The GSA Ivy Centre, Guildford.

Attending weekly rehearsals, Ben worked closely with the creative directors, Michelle Mutuleasa and Gabija Čepelytė to create an hour long original soundtrack. Drawing from Persian, Turkish and Arabic music and fusing it violently with dystopian industrial aesthetics, the performance took on a dark, post-industrial edge which hoped to stand out in the world of contemporary dance in which minimalist musical aesthetics prevail.

Below is a short film documenting the experience, and in addition, a film of the full dress rehearsal performance, shot by award winning Iranian film maker, Sama Mirmiran.
