We recently filmed and edited two of Paper Doll Militia‘s pieces, performed at Re-Grip¬†at Summerhall.

The first is a trio piece, Ashes, devised by Sarah Holmes with Debbie Robbins and Phil Hardie. It’s a great high energy aerial performance which makes good use of the whole stage space, centred around a newly devised apparatus that uses weighted ropes to create unique and exciting choreography. As well as two HD cameras on the deck, we used a GoPro overhead to capture an unusual angle that really shows the performances dynamic use of space.

Seretide is a new solo piece by Sarah Holmes; again she’s devised new apparatus, this time using a dozen small ropes to create something that sits between aerial silks and rope in terms of choreography and skills. The multiple ropes make for a really interesting visual, and we’re looking forward to getting the opportunity to do some work with this apparatus again.
