Roselyne (Tereza Vejvodová, CZ 2021, 20’)

Choreography: Markéta Jandová

An audiovisual poem based on the true story of Roselyne - a woman who forgot to live her life. She could be a reflection of our doubts, the decisions we did not make, the possibilities we did not enjoy. How do we become our true selves?

Épicentre - A film by Anne Nguyen et Greg Kozo (Anne Nguyen, Greg Kozo, FR 2022, 8’)

Choreography: Anne Nguyen

Anne Nguyen invites the spectator to question the concept of cultural appropriation and the stereotypes associated with bodies through dance. The film queries the influence that large architectural complexes have over humans and their social behaviour, while celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Résidence Le Parc in Paris.

Toporzeł (Iwona Pasińska, PL 2019, 9’)

Choreography: Iwona Pasińska

Toporzeł was inspired by the sculptures of Stanisław Szukalski (Poland, 1893-1987). In the sculptures the motif of the human body appears: muscle tension, movement and expression. In the film we see mountain landscapes, from which dancers emerge. Everything intertwines with each other, emphasising the strong bonds between man and nature.

αβ (ALPHABETA) (Dylan Joseph Schitrit, IL 2021, 6’)

Choreography: Gal Karmona

Enigmatic creatures make their way through the contemporary building of the Tel Aviv Museum

7Y98 (Director: Jeff Hamada, David Ehrenreich, CA 2022, 12’)

Choreography: RubberLegz -

7Y98D unites two voices of the street dance community of Vancouver: Ouro Collective and Rauf “RubberLegz” Yasit. The title was inspired by The Climate Clock, a public art installation in New York by artists Gan Golan and Andrew Boyd. The clock counts down the time left to avoid climate disaster.

VIVALDIS (Philippe Decouflé, FR 2019, 15’)

Choreography: Philippe Decouflé

High up in the Alps, we discover a strange tribe; a dance troupe in brightly coloured costumes that moves to the rhythm of Vivaldi. Shot in the Vanoise National Park in Savoie, France, Vivaldis is an adaptation of a short contemporary ballet by choreographer Philippe Decouflé.
