Sasha Amaya (Canada) and Paloma Ayala (Mexico) came together to create a body of collaborative work synthesising the media of dance and drawing. The first work, a series of animations by Ayala entitled Zala Moves, were based on movement created by Amaya in response to various spaces in the town of Lendava, Slovenia. The movement was then transformed into drawings, exploring kinetics, the possibility for physical extension and contraction, and the distorition of shape. Subsequently, these drawings were animated, reinterpreting and reimagining the form and character of the original movement sequences. The second work, What Where, is a dance piece by Amaya created in conjunction with a video projection by Ayala. This work seeks to further explore the relationship between visual and kinetic art, movement, timing, space, and sound.

Sasha Amaya (Kanada) in Paloma Ayala (Mehika) sta se združili za ustvaritev celote, ki z medsebojno kolaboracijo sintetizirala medij za ples in risanje. Prvo delo je serija animacij Ayale z naslovom ”Zala moves” (Zala Poteze), katere so osnovane na gibih Amaye, ki so odzivi na razne prostore v mestu Lendava, Slovenija. Gibi so nato bili transformirani v risbe, ki raziskujejo kinetiko ter možnosti fizičnega raztezanja in krčenja ter distorzijo oblike. Nadalje so te slike bile animirane, da reinterpretirajo in reimaginirajo obliko in karakter prvotnih gibalnih zaporedij. Drugo delo, ”What Where” (Kaj, Kje), je plesna točka Amaye, ustvarjena v zvezi z video projekcijo Ayale. Slednje delo si nadalje prizadeva raziskovati razmerja med vizualno in kinetično umetnostjo, gibanjem, časovn usklajenostjo, prostorom in zvokom.
