Steel Work mixes dance with industrial elements which simulate dance movement and form. This film offers a unique dance for camera work through its application of non-dance elements as dance. At the core of this piece is choreography by Robert Poole which was inspired by principles of industry. Other elements include electronic manipulation of images, a steel mill, steel workers choreographed by Poole, and steel structures in New York.
Music by Philip Glass, David Bowie, Brian Eno.
