EMBRACE / Shantala Pèpe / Belgia/Anglia / 2014 / 7’28’’
A woman and a man share a suspended moment of intimacy sitting before a vast ocean. Here they muse on the enigmatic immensity of their own destiny, taking us into an ethereal fantasy that is compelled by ardent love, outside of time and the constraints of questioning.
FUTURE / Marta Kosieradzka / Polska / 2014 / 8’15’’
Creation of a dance film based on the poem „The three oddest words’’ by polish nobel -prize wiining poet Wislawa Szymborska. The words that are very definied and have a lot of conotations are transformed into an abstract and poetic language of dance which brings the words and their meaning into a different context. ''Future'' is a film about passing of time, we impatiently wait for the future to come and although it imediatelly turns into past. It’s a short, strong and compact visual interpretation of the poem in a collaborative project between three art disciplines: dance, film and music.
OFF GROUND / Boudewijn Koole, Jakop Ahlbom / Holandia / 2013 / 12’30’’
A light grey room. A slender woman of 50 and a 12-year-old boy. Joined together like the links of a chain. Changing positions at a constant rate. One flowing movement. Never losing touch with each other. A game played by a mother and her child. A kind of tango. Sound of feet. Breathing. Faint smiles. Until suddenly the woman’s hands let go of each other.
CONTORSION / Alessandro Carmeci / Makao/Wielka Brytania / 2014 / 2’56’’
“Twisted state of body”
RITE OF PASSAGE / Juliette Yu-Ming / Brazylia / 2014 / 11’50’’
In an abandoned house, a body dances its memories… RITE OF PASSAGE is a sensory exploration of the act of becoming, transformation and the search for one’s identity. Featuring improvised Butoh dance, rare archival footage and an experimental soundtrack, it explores the relation to one’s memories and the place of transformation. What happens in the process of "becoming"? How can the body express the sometimes violent nature of change? How are we constructed through these rites of passage? In the words of Gilles Deleuze, “the self is only a threshold, a door, a becoming between two multiplicities”.
