Graduate Show, 1999 Beta
For her graduation project Billing invited her graduating fellow students from the various disciplines at Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, to take dance lessons during the spring of 1999 together with the choreographer Anna Vnuk. In the final film that deals with learning and becoming, the pedagogical aura of the art school is pitched against the more rapaciously aspirant desire of the talent show, we see the students run down corridors and staircases from their respective departement to reach the schools aula to perform a reherarsed, a concentrated show dance routine to the soundtrack by ESG’s track Moody (1981).
