What would your emotional body say to you, if you would have decided to cut your links with him in order to survive in a toxic environment ?
Tusalih is a dance film directed by Shaun Bui, in collaboration with Parisian designer Georgie Salama and creative studio Jayah Studio.
It tells the story of the reconciliation of a young woman and her emotional body, interpreted by Stencia Yambogaza and Germain Zambi, combining contemporary dance and Krump.
Many people decide to cut themselves from their emotions, becoming tough and keeping buried inside their feelings.

LANDFALL, 9min., USA, Dance
Directed by Kate Weare, Jack Flame Sorokin

Landfall offers a sensory fantasy of naturalism, a hallucinatory look at the human body in nature. Playing with a visual edge between organic and artificial, Landfall wonders, yearningly, whether we humans belong in the natural world…or are we visitors, outsiders, a kind of alien?

Directed by Viktorija Zobielaite

KOLONIAL, 20min., USA, Dance/Experimental
Directed by Stefanie Batten Bland, Jean-Claude Dhien

Kolonial is the final product of several years of research by Batten Bland and installation artist Conrad Quesen. Inspired by the colonial exposition parks of Europe, North America, and the Caribbean during the 1810s–1940s, this dance cinema work examines how we create definitions to justify systems of exploitation and oppression. Kolonial interrogates suppressed identity through physical posturing and gesture in transparent COVID spaces of today.
