WALL TO WALL, 13min., Belgium, Dance

Directed by Styliani Lamprinou

A fantasy made with three walls, two female bodies and only one act: pushing. Pushing as a metaphor of human effort against the walls, barriers, limits that we set for ourselves in the space. A small, ordinary room in a city apartment is transformed into a laboratory of tactile sensuality.

TULIPE, 4min., Luxembourg, Music

Directed by Ted Kayumba & Samuel Reinard

Based on the music piece Tulipe (in French) by Ryvage, the video further explores the conceptual origin of the track, the Tulip mania phenomenon (a period in the Dutch Golden Age in the 17th century during which prices for virus infected tulips reached stratospheric heights before dramatically collapsing) and the notions of claustrophobia and confinement in an audio-visual and choreographic way.

SODDEN GROUND, 9min., USA, Dance

Directed by Dale Andree, Thryn Saxon

“sodden ground” was created from the mud, the water, the driftwood that is the landscape of this particular place. Like any place, like any person we are the sum of many parts, randomly organized to create the complex harmony of life.

LONG NIGHT, 3min., France, Music

Directed by Marjorie Galluccio

Bye Bye Johnny was born from the heart of the creative desert of Burning Man. From a dreamlike scenery and endless American roads, like the ones you ride through at full speed behind the wheel of a shiny Mustang.

SMALL WORLD, 4min,. USA, Dance

Directed by Danny Boulet

A dance exploration of the confines of a small world where everything changes and moves in unexpected ways. When what is up and what is down and what is still and what moves is in constant flux, the question arises- to what extent do we adjust to fit the new normal in this world?

Each of the five films were choreographed, learned, performed and filmed amid the myriad constraints of social-distancing.
