Short Film: CHROMATIC VARIATIONS, 3min., Canada, Dance

B6e70718ba poster

Chromatic Variations is a short dance film that brings together several distinct studies exploring the sensory and affective relations between bodies, material, light, and colour. Progressing from abstract imagery to sculptural scenography, the movement from variation to variation offers a constantly shifting perspective on a common set of raw materials, developed through an experimental and playful in-studio process over the course of shooting. In production, we were inspired by the physicality and unpredictability of practical effects and process-filmmaking. Drawing inspiration from the Romantic-era landscapes of J. M. W. Turner, Mark Rothko’s colour-fields, and psychedelia, the film asks viewers to tune in to minute variations in touch, awareness, and texture- an intensity and scope of sensation akin to feeling the hairs on the back of one’s neck stand up.

651426d8a2 poster

“Kaddume” is an expedition that recognizes San Basilio de Palenque’s past and future relationships. It’s a look to and from the body, the land they live in and the voice of their female ancestors. The same ones that opened new paths in search of freedom. This dance is a new approach through rhythm and movement, to that strength and wisdom. It is an homage of these girls, not professional dancers, to that empowered walk of freedom that still lives in their bodies.

Short Film: WEIGHTLESS, 5min., Canada, Dance

A01360cbc7 poster

What happens when we allow ourselves to shift perspectives? When we defy established concepts such as “direction”? Perhaps, just perhaps, up is not up, and we need to look down.
Weightless is an invitation to create an alternative reality. To imagine a world where the rules we believe unbreakable are simply an option. We invite you to get lost in your thoughts and the satisfaction of defying our most established understandings.
