This Is A Lie
"This is a Lie" is a photography and dance concept conceived and created by Sam Aslanian (Photographer) and Michelle Thompson Ulerich (Choreographer). "This is a Lie" was one of two worlds Sam and Michelle created for Sam to photograph. Sam's photographs are a much fragmented and abstracted view of this dance, and most recently a selection of photographs were shown in Hollywood at Visual Artists Group. The photographs are not traditional dance poses or forms. Sam and Michelle were working towards something more raw, abstracted, and filled with emotion and movement. Also during the process each one of the three couples were filmed during their multiple runs of the duet, and it was during this time that Tom Andre captured this movement on film. Ellie Aslanian then took the large amount of footage (much of which Sam was in), and edited and created this incredible film. Music is by The Cure.
