Echo the Now 

Echo the Now is a movie in progress where the border between the cultivated lie and the primitive truth is being explored. In the dialogue with the other, the artist allows herself a wide range of freedom of expression, transforming herself into a variety of figures, men and women, erasing cultural prejudices.

Feature film                                                   

Echo the Now is a feature film that captures the performances of Anet van de Elzen. Performances that were created in the past while in dialogue with the audience are re-enacted in front of the camera, taking you on a seventy minute journey discovering images, sound and poetry.

Origin                                                                                                

The only real echo of a performance is a story told by a witness. One cannot go back in time. Last year Anet started a pilot project to investigate the possibility of transmitting her performances onto film. This allowed her the experience of a new medium to communicate her images to a larger audience.

Places                                                                                               

The performances are now made at new location, the works being recreated in the solitude of old forts, the dunes of Texel, or the oldest church in Amsterdam.

The pilot                                                                                          

During the process of making the pilot, filming and editing of ten performances, an awareness arose of the connection between the actions, and a storyline started to emerge. The experience of the making of the pilot is the base on which to build the feature movie.

16 mm film                                                                                         

While the pilot was made with digital cameras, the feature movie will be made on a 16mm film. Through this we aim at a concentration of the sensory experience, transmitting the physicality of the materials being used in the performances, the texture of the costumes and the intense colours of sky and paint.
