Charlotte Edmonds’ “Goldfish”

December 30, 2022

“Goldfish plunges into the mind of someone going through the motions and gasping to escape overconsumption within an ordinary space,” says director and choreographer Charlotte Edmonds about “Goldfish,” her recent film representing sensory overload issues and the overwhelming distractions often found in waiting rooms.  Featuring Aishwarya Raut of Rambert, Edmunds depicts the idea of having the “attention span of a goldfish” through electric, sinuous movement. Set to an original score by Katya Richardson and Ryan Sullivan and influenced by research from neuroscientist Crawford Winlove, “Goldfish” was evolved from a live performance originating at Bayerisches Staatsballett in Munich.
