Dirk de Bruyn has been creating film works for over 35 years; mostly in the hand-made, 'direct animation' mode. He also performs live with multiple projections of his films in a highly embodied mode of expanded cinema performance. His work is renowned for its intricate, suggestive layering of sound and image, and use of sumptuous, blooming fields of colour.

An active participant in our PyR16, Dirk will be discussing his conceptual work, his meticulous creative process, and his particular relationship with the materials, light, space and time both on film and stage, illustrating with some examples.

We'll conclude with a Q&A session with the attendants.
