‘Phases of Dance’ reveals what’s going through a dancer’s mind, highlighting the motions audiences overlook

Leah Collins · CBC Arts · December 6

“This isn’t the typical way to watch dance, and it’s not the typical way of animating it either.

Iveta Karpathyova is the Toronto artist behind the two short films we’ll be airing on this week’s episode of CBC Arts: Exhbitionists, “Phases of Dance” (2017) and “Bachata Dance: Te Vas” (2016).

She’s an animator, and she’s also a dancer. That’s actually her in “Phases of Dance” — swaying with dance partner Pavlo Farmakidis — and she brings her perspective on both art forms to the videos you’re about to watch.”

"Phases of Dance" is a 2D-animated film composed of approximately 2,100 individual drawings.

Produced in four months, the film documents embodied technique of bachata through rotoscoping. Using real-life footage as a base for animation, the four-month production began with a dance choreography by Pavlo Farmakidis and filming of a bachata sequence performed by Farmakidis and Karpathyova.

Hand-drawn in two months at approx. 100 drawings per day, the 3min 40sec animation is also a documentation of Iveta's technique in traditional animation as she drew sequentially on a daily basis and the chronological order (date timeline on bottom left) of each frame (frame count on bottom right) represents her progress in drawing, painting, and understanding of motion.
