Dance artist Sarah Houbolt introduces choreography inspired by audio describing visual art, and her unique experience of blindness. She is assisted through collaboration with cinematographer Jamie Gray and choreographer Amy Mauvan to implement her creative vision. Reflecting years of dance research and practice, the frame captures the essence of her unique body weaving through light and shadow, dream and memory. Inspired by Matisse, who made his Jazz series masterpiece from his bed, Sarah celebrates what is found when you really use what you’ve got. This dance film plays with what is possible when you consider audio description and the visceral elements of dance on film.
