rage and desire | part 1
Harvey Dimond Ruppert Gabriel

A programme of video and newly commissioned texts that will unfold over the coming weeks and months. Part 1 offered a tribute and reflection: the film after which this series was named, Ruppert Gabriel's Rage and Desire (1991) and ecstatic tendencies written by Harvey Dimond.

A still from the film rage and desire, the image is of medium quality, slightly blurred and hazy. Two black men in grey leotards pose athletically. They are contemporary dancers mid routine. They are in a dark room, their bodies and the surrounding floor illuminated by spotlight. Their legs are stretched into a lunge and they both lean backwards in unison. The body of the dancer in the foreground partially obstructs his partner, as if they are one being with four legs, two heads and four arms. Both right arms are stretched towards the floor and their left hands are clasped together.
