verbum

Verbum is a short dance film set to music by Igor Stravinsky, accompanied by the recitation of various vocabulary words. Dramatic imagery lends itself to complex words being spoken as the music of Stravinsky helps to further define words such as, “laconic,” and “perfidious.”

Created by Mallory Baxley and Zoetic. Presented in collaboration for Piano in the Arts with Dr. Benjamin Warsaw at Armstrong Atlantic State University in Savannah, GA in April 2014. Performed by Zoetic.
