Synopsis

Presented in partnership with FIG55 Productions and Rakoon studio

North American Premiere

Five men and women venture into a strange place that will play tricks on them. Transformations take place, and the characters are no longer quite human, nor quite dancers, as they split and oscillate with nonchalance and sadness to Vivaldi’s music. A combination of perspectives and kaleidoscopic effects, this short film created in 360 video revisits the landscapes that punctuate the imagination of Philippe Decouflé, from 1950s cinema to Alwin Nikolais' choreographies.
