Let yourself be tempted by a DANCE FILM about BEAUTY

Synopsis

In an unreal garden of strange beauty, lying somewhere in the confinement of the human psyche— beings transform over the passing seasons. Time is imbued in their flesh. On this earth that carries the smell of musk and rusticity, Lake probes the intimate relationship between the body, the image and sculpture, with a contemporary signature that is well known to him. Through a choreography where the intensity is often revealed in the restraint, the landscape bodies clash with the weather, gather together to survive, and calm themselves in the depths of the lulls. Their movements are sedimented and then draw interior territories that are examined and excavated, layer by layer, to extract memories. Dedicated to an unceasing metamorphosis, they become the sensitive witnesses of the perpetual trembling of things.
