Jump Cuts explores ideas around Foley sound, cinema space and the presence and absence of the ‘live’.
A single screen cuts between live video feeds of three performers jumping in various hidden parts of the building. Wearing specially built metal and wooden shoes the sound is initially heard acoustically, leaving a question as to if it is live and if so where the performers are. Intermittently the sounds are amplified into the auditorium and as the jumping becomes more and more frequent the sounds and images start to become mixed up and seemingly in and out of sync.
Jump Cuts uses the Cinema and the Screen to explore what happens inside and outside the frame and the on and off screen sound, creating live action to explore the hidden spaces of the building.
