David Knight - 1st Sept 2014

In keeping with the title of Mike Mago's latest dancefloor-filler Outlines, a greyscaled dancer (Ida May) enters a studio and proceeds to leave technicolor silhouettes around the room in Ciaran Lyon's nicely-executed video. 


"The video grew from the idea of a dancer's movements leaving behind visual echoes (outlines) as she moves around a space. Together with a great dancer, I started playing around with this idea to see where we could take it.

"We were interested in her movements creating a variety of different types of figures. Sometimes her movements are graceful; sometimes they're awkward. Sometimes they're dreamy and abstract; sometimes they look like backing dancers on Top of the Pops."
