Shot entirely within the pandemic interior of May 2020, 126 BPM (anatomy of an underperforming choreography) is a video documenting rehearsals for an unseen rooftop dance. The dance resurfaces as a trace of the time that shaped it, blending together in its recurrence with footage from home movies and failed screen tests for a slutty cooking show. In this state of contingency, dance steps and structures repeat themselves, seeking delayed resonance with a muddled period of rooftop dances and unaudienced “dance films”.
