Off Ground

Boudewijn Koole
Netherlands 2013

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. […]

Daniela Villanueva, Mara Soler
Mexiko 2013

A hula hoop floats amidst a stunning location of México city. As it moves, a dancer appears and plays wit the hoop. Every movement creates lines, impressive shapes and lights that float in the space as if being drawn to gradually create an impressive sculpture in movement.

Spiegelingen / Mirroring

Dunja Jocic, Marinus Groothof
Netherlands 2011

A man is drawn into an abandoned house. As he explores the house, he notices that it is bigger from inside than the outside. A sound lures him into the building. He follows what he thinks is music and stumbles into an empty room. A broken radio on the floor deepens the sudden absence of […]

Daniela Wayllace
Belgium 2012

In a mourning ceremony the photographer takes a picture of a little girl. With the face contrite assistants leave the room, leaving it surrounded by flowers. Little by little we approach the girl and recoup her memories and the universe of death.

Compagnie 7273

Régis Golay
Switzerland 2012

A Dance company, 2 dancers, 3 choreographies, 3 bulldozer, poetry, a sequence shot. Either traveling in a gravel quarry. What the camera catches is a row of shovels. Three monsters to stop producing successively three times, three monochrome with ephemeral colored sand. These three sets of dust punctuate the passage of two dancers. And here […]

Carino Marites
Canada 2010

In this experimental dance short, a woman floats in a black void, swinging through shafts of light, keeping in perpetual motion an incandescent and familiar circular childhood toy. HOOP traces a provocative and sophisticated picture, breaking hula hoop stereotypes while merging themes of the cosmos, infinity and the cycle of life.

Inner Demon

Wolfram Kampffmeyer
Switzerland 2012

„Inner demon“ ist ein Stück worin die Darsteller sich mit ihrer inneren Stimme konfrontieren. Der Drang immer besser, größer, cleverer zu sein sind Erwartungen die wir uns selbst und anderen gegenüber stellen. Auch mit Zweifeln, versuchen wir ein Weg zu finden um mit unsere Unterbewusstsein in Einklang zu schwingen. Dennoch, wie kann man sich den […]
