PROGRAM OF THE EVENING
HOMING / Xabier Iriondo / Hiszpania / 2014 / 30’
Dziewczyna dorastająca w stadzie wilków powraca do miasta. Po drodze spotyka postaci, które kształtują jej zachowanie. HOMING przedstawia podróż z dzikiego świata do życia w społeczeństwie.
LET'S SAY / Fuk Pak Jim / Anglia / 2014/ 8’
LET'S SAY focuses on modern communication issues between people. Three scenes, three dances, one message: Stop Phubbing!
*Phubbing: the act of snubbing someone in a social setting by looking at your phone instead of paying attention.
L'ÉPHÉMÈRE / Marta Wódz, Katarzyna Sitarz, Raphaël Rautureau / Polska / 2014 / 1’50’’
Film about a faint impression, which comes out of nowhere and, despite of temporary intensity, disappears very quickly. Before the dancer could realise what is happening around him, it is already over - as if he was driven by a wave or a sudden blow of the wind.
WAY OUT / Jacopo Landi, Vanessa Michielon / Włochy / 2014 / 6’40’’
What happens when we suspend all our actions to question them? By making visible the immaterial layer of thoughts, the video aims at revealing the inner dimension of the dancer and at investigating the relationship between stream of consciousness and flow of movement. Overcoming the paralysis of doubt, we can enter the state of flow, where there is no need for interruptions to reflect, because we are so involved in our actions that they follow each other in a natural way.
THE TIME OF A TANGO / Frederic Hontschoote / Francja / 2014 / 4’45’’
An old man sits lonely in a tango ball filled with young dancers. He is bored, until arrives a woman of his age…
BEATING / Kari Sulc / Czechy / 2014 / 6’
In this observational dance film, the camera work and editing draw to the surface not only the beauty of intentional movement but also the unexpectedly archaic, ritual dimension of an ordinary training session.
CHEST / Nønne Mai Svalholm / Dania / 2013 / 10’
CHEST is about intimate relationship between a man and a woman as it develops. Throughout the duet the dancers repeatedly hammer their chests together. The repetitive collision not only symbolizes their emotional state, but also the complexity of a relationship in a society highly influenced by culture and religion. CHEST was shoot on a rooftop in Downtown Cairo, April 2013. Tear gas from riots in the streets below gave an extreme physical memory of Cairo.
THINGS ARE LOOKING UP /Alicja Hoppel / Polska|Niemcy / 2014 / 2’45’’
Even when getting only partial image, our brain will add up to it, based on what we have seen before.
LIVING INSIDE BODIES / Petra Bučková / Czechy / 2013/ 8’30’’
Documentary movie is about the philosopher, dancer and choreographer Pierre Nadaud. Pierre looking for answers to five questions through words, move and language. Integrity of his answers arise by film editing, when audio (word) and video (move) join together.
SMALL ROOM SYNDROME / Natalia Wilk / Polska / 2014 / 4’30’’
Small Room Syndrome – polish parochialism's appartment. Dance in your house – somebody's watching. Someone is next to. No peace and ease with morning coffee. Bath taking- impossible. Wonder about intimate moment. Lonely cigarette. Not hearing neighboor knocking, yelling, patters...Negotiate your paths within it. So it's ergonomy. Not to bother elses privacy with yours. Our project starts in the kitchen, like Jonathan Burrows ones. It is a kitchen story of not a single WK-70 flat.
PAMIĘTAJĄC O NYX / Filip Wencki, Joanna Sieradzan / Polska / 2014 / 4’45’’
The video is the result of the improvisation project run by Joanna Sieradzan and Filip Wencki on the peripheries of ...city, dance, mythology. The Nyx gave birth to many children and many mighty gods. Among these the two too much occupied with their play to realize the time that passed. All the mighty gods - passed away. All their primordial siblings - gone. Slowly realizing they may not be kids any more, their play may no more be a play, and their existence... it may not be so certain any more.
WannaBe / Jessica Taylor / USA / 2014 / 7’
An adaptation of an original solo dance work choreographed by Jessica Taylor, Artistic Director of NYC dance company DAMAGEDANCE with original music composition by Ximena Borges (co-director of the film). This solo plays upon masculinity vs. femininity, and exposes expectations of gender identity. This solo is designed to be performed by a female or a male dancer, interchangeably. The way a viewer connects with the lead characters, regardless of the viewer's gender, sparks the interest of Taylor.
