Susanna Brenner and Helle Lyshøj have joined forces and are now operating under the name VideoMachas. They are visual artists based in Amsterdam, specialized in developing concepts for moving images in the fields of theater, performance, music clips and video art.
Theatre is the art of the unique moment. VideoMachas uses video as a technique to keep this moment alive. The camera is zooming into significant gestures, can focus on the particular micro-detail on the set, but it can also keep the distance of the objective observer to catch the work like it is. We can compress performances into unique trailers, without losing the spirit of the work.
Editing a performance is condensing a dramaturgical timeline. We can also use the edit as an expression to communicate a performance, a festival or a theatre to a different audience. As interactive clips on net or as promotional DVD or a documentary on your event.
