Short Film: BONDIARIES, 3min., Germany, Dance

 

Bd19c47d9a posterLuxembourgish dancer & photographer Jill Bettendorff and french dancer Wilfried Ebongue fell in love in the german capital 5 years ago. Coming from different social, cultural & artistic backgrounds, it has been their challenge ever since to find a common & new ground, whether it was on a private or professional level. They never let their differences define them so they´ve been striving to find their own boundaries, limitation, comfort & discomfort zones, to who they are as a couple, personally & artistically.

They teamed up with german videographer Torben Loth to create a video where they explore different constellations that can happen within a relationship, based on the three words: dependence, independence & interdependence.
The video shows a conceptual performance that moves through those different stages.

Starting with dependence, a space where one is guided by the other regardless of one person’s needs. Moving through independence where we move on our own without needing the support of the other to finally arrive in a space of interdependence where we give ourselves the freedom to be ourselves & equally support each other.
