Austria / 1972 / 10 minutes / NR

Human forms in “Shapes” dance to J.S. Bach´s breakneck runs on the harpsichord. However the animated spray paintings of plump discus throwers and wiry girls quickly confuse our culturally conditioned eye: What´s male, what´s female? The music quickens. As they dance in a sped-up micro-evolution, their movements become increasingly voluptuous, their bodies fuller-more: feminine it would seem, but who could say in this case?
