"Distance in its Movement" is an interactive dance film, in which movement takes form not only within the limitations of a dancer's body. Choreography can be defined as an arrangement or sequence of steps and movements - our project takes this definition, expands it, and challenges all creative elements within it to be composed as a collage in a permanent state of movement, where stillness in a body can exist as movement around it persists.
"Distance in its Movement" also invites its audiences to join in its continuous shaping, actively engaging with the choreography from beginning to end. One gets to decide the final form of these movements and their distance.
