Physical Thoughts (United States)

By Anne Hollowday

 

A dancer reflects on a recent injury. A dancer's body is their whole life. It is the sum total of their history, it’s the medium through which they make a living and it’s their method of creative expression. After a dramatic injury puts a professional dancer out of action for six months, she reflects on how our physical thoughts reveal who we are, perhaps even more than what we say. A meditation on authenticity, the creative life and facing one's own fears, Physical Thoughts is the document of an injury and a poetic distillation of wisdom for every artist.

Adem aan Adem / Breath to Breath (Netherlands)

By Miloushka Bokma

 

Memories are experiences reflected in someone's face, glance or posture. They are signals, as elusive traces in the body: manifest or suppressed. I examine the language of the body in relation to its environment. They are a staged-in-context situations, where the human capacity and inability to relate to his or her own history become visible and tangible.
