ROCK COUNTRY, 7min., Spain, Dance

Directed by Dimegaz

The aesthetics and spectacular nature of vertical dance, set in a quarry, a place destroyed by humankind. The beauty of dance substitutes the crudeness of the rock. Attention is focused upon the figure of a woman, demanding a leading role –as is happening in today’s society–. Women that dance, women that climb, women that even lift rocks, as if they were heaving high a country. Harria is the rock, Herria the country.

AGON, 4min., Brazil, Dance

Directed by MANUEL NOGUEIRA

Nothing here has been done for us. The human being lives an illusion of protagonism in relation to existence, a narcissistic process of thinking that everything is done for the human being. People are at home, struggling in a dispute for protagonism.

LIMINALITY, 8min,. USA, Dance

Directed by Jennifer Akalina Petuch, Annali Rose

Liminality is inspired by reimagining what Odette may have experienced upon plunging to her death in the lake from the classical ballet “Swan Lake”. It is a moment of suspended reality and a story of disenchantment, self-discovery and transformation. In our modern world we know that “happily ever after” is a journey and we have the ability to exercise our own agency to create our experience. In our story, the heroine is exploring the space in between life and death. She is coming to terms with the end of her world as she knew it and finding the strength and courage to move into a new existence.

FLOOR FALLS, 3min., UK, Dance

Directed by Jennifer Paterson, Lewis Gourlay, Abby Warrilow

A women stands, takes a breath, and moves. Arching back extending further than seems possible, she steps forward, rising up onto the tip of her toe and over the threshold. We see blackness then she appears. Rotating and twisting, the camera and her dance around each other. She suspends, or has the floor fallen?

PANDEMIA, 4min., Germany, Music/Experimental

Directed by Katerina Giannakopoulou

An experimental movie such as an art music video which shows the relationship between human kind and nature and how it has evolved through the artistic perspective of dance. The viral pandemic is the theme. I got my inspiration from the strange rythm of the music and its sound easthetic, also choosing dance moves from my own point of view representing aspects of the destruction of nature by humans relating to the pandemic. As the dancer and actor, I represent mother nature illustrated by different facial expressions and gestures, such as, being torn, weakness, the mechanization of natural movement as a form of violation by humans and then in return, nature throwing a virus back to us, for our destruction.
