Occupational Hazard is a series of four short dance films, originally designed to be played for exhibition on four separate screens simultaneously. The films explore personal experiences of the transition from dance education to finding and creating work in the dance sector, developed with an interest in the emotional and physical impact of rejection, procrastination and a fear of constant “dream-chasing”.
The single-frame film (2011) was edited by Adrian Garcia: vimeo.com/31926812 and revisited by Natalia Barua in 2016 to create this multiple frame version.
The project was supported by Centro Cultural Barceloneta (Barcelona).
