Promenade (c) 2015 film by Cirila Luz Ferrón ARGENTINA
They are time,
Silence and space.
They are angles,
Darkness and light.
And also colours.
They are vertices
Doors and windows
Floors and ceilings
They are their home.
Their bodies, the architecture of their being and their lives
Our film brings together dance, video and architecture in order to find new readings of space, making connections that design a virtual journey between functional and symbolic dimensions of architecture and poetic and geometric dimensions of space. Articulated by the choreography, our bodies and the camera’s eye look for new associations and senses.

The Double (c) 2016 film by Nicola Hepp (Netherlands)
A hallucinatory landscape of dreams where language dissolves and movement and song becomes the only means of navigation between dreaming and waking.
A man experiences an unsettling encounter with someone very much like himself.
The Double is about the anonymity of urban life and takes its inspiration from the notion of a ‘doppelgänger’, a double.
In the words of artist and curator of the Screendance Festival Breaking 8’s Alessandra Pisu: A film about unexpressed possibilities, roads not taken, epiphanies, revealing glimpses; and that old fear, of meeting in person- someday-somewhere- the person we could have been.
Nicola Hepp – Director
Key Cast – Gihan Koster & Terencio Douw
MASS film by Fu LE, Adrien Gontier (c) 2019 FRANCE
MASS is a 10 minutes single take video-dance shot in Paris. The project was framed within the Danse en Seine’s choreographic workshops, including 40 amateur dancers. Images of the crowd appear more and more often and symbolize the current upheavals all over the world, evoking alternately parties, migrations, manifestations, gatherings or just the daily life of big cities. We thus work on the mass, with all the drunkenness it can inspire. We confront the individual with crowd movements, in order to observe how he resists or lets immerse himself.
Fu LE – Director & Writer
Adrien Gontier – Director
