SP 04 Body Talk - Dance & Choreography Shorts


Dance as a political force for a dance troupe of girls, dance as a way of resisting the surveillance state, dance as a means of liberation on the cliffs of Ireland. BODY TALK even takes a look from the future back into the past through choreographies, animation, and documentary films, laying bare an energetic moment: Physical contact as the highest form of physicality.
