A structuralist experiment in camera movement and point-of-view using split-screen.
If Only I Could See the World Through Your Eyes is one of four short dance films made between 1998 and 2002 which challenge the boundaries of what is traditionally acknowledged as dance. All four films focus on pedestrian movement, i.e. everyday actions such as running, jumping and falling, and aim to re-present this movement through a choreographic framing.
