I was thinking about Merce Cunningham, but i wish i could dance like Michael Jackson

The work is presented as a choreographical action in a number of photo shots (30) in a public park and a two channels video mash-up. A dancer with a yellow dress, similar of Merce Cunningham stage costumes, and a plastic mask with the face of Michael Jackson performs movements and postures for the camera. This project is a comparison between two figures who revolutionized the dance world in a completely different way: Michael Jackson is a sort of dynamic icon for the contemporary societ, the most imitated dance moves of all times. The subject of Merce Cunningham choreography is dance itself, the movement code is a tool for his creation.
