A single floating body hovers in the depths of an ocean, sand particles drift suspended in air, a dancer emerges from a pale white forest mist. These are just some of the breathtaking images viewers will encounter in this exhibition within the six short narrative stories through the universal language of screendance. This type of visually aesthetic filmmaking encapsulates dance created specifically for film. The films are created by top international female filmmakers and choreographers from around the globe. Their films will take viewers on a visual experience transcending language, cultural and economic barriers.
