Reel

By borrowing existing structures of games and play in her work, Al-Ani investigates the unfolding relationships between the participants.

In 'Reel', Al-Ani focuses the camera on five pairs of feet performing, with varying degrees of confidence, a simple Irish dance. One pair of feet lead, the others follow. The performers become incidental, as their relationship of co-operation and dependency, both on the other participants, and on a knowledge of the steps, becomes apparent.
