Dance study
"T R A N S I T I O"
(2015)

I present here some film material which was shot at Lanzarote, Spain. The fragment is part of my research for an evening length solo for dance stage and theatres. The solo itself is not primarily intended as a “movie” – this scenes are rather meant to illustrate my grasp of research in autumn 2013.
