and the 2009 winner is…
Marianna Mørkøre & Rannvá Káradóttir, experimental, Faroe Islands, 2009, 5.52 min
Memotech is an experimental dance short film, exploring the contrast between a minimalistic movement vocabulary and the overwhelming nature of the Faroe Islands. The film is shot on Super 8 in order to create a surreal and fairytale-ish atmosphere, being a unique contribution to the unexplored category of dance films.
Marianna Mørkøre began her filmmaking career during fashion studies at Ravensbourne College of Design and Communication, London 2004. Her great interest in challenging the traditional perception of visual art and moving image, has generated unique visual narratives that are marked by an experimental imagery approach and a personal voice.
Rannvá Káradóttir has emerged as one of the most prominent Danish choreographers, since she graduated from London Contemporary Dance School in 2004. Her practice has expanded beyond pure movement investigation, and she has developed a distinctive movement vocabulary, exploring dance in various contexts and cross disciplinary works.
