Creation 2018

11 minutes

In a metronomic and hypnotic sway, a woman emerges from the shadow, her eyes staring forward. Animated by metric and smooth arm dance, she is emanating cold and mechanical sensuality. As she moves forward, her movements free themselves and turn into erratic outbursts and volutes transforming her from one woman to another, from one role to another. Organicity and breath interfere in the stranglehold of the rhythmic loop and give way to enchantment.
