Overview

Loopdiver: The Journey of a Dance

The subject of this avant garde release is 'Troika Ranch,' an experimental dance-theater performance troupe based out of New York City and Berlin. At the outset of the film, the group temporarily relocates to Lincoln, Nebraska to mount a new production called 'loopdiver.' The piece at hand seeks to explore the "loops" created by the computerized modern world, and the mechanistic repetitions in which people find themselves trapped on day-to-day basis. The film follows the troupe over the course of two long years - a period when the participants/performers struggle with the physical and emotional demands that loopdiver places on them. For a time, inspiration seems entirely absent, but it strikes when the dancers visit a Midwestern rehabilitation hospital and observe the repetitive motions that patients perform to re-attain complete physical mobility.
