Living on the Threshold
Directors Vincent Bruno, Marine Chesnais - France - 30 min.
Marine Chesnais, choreographer and contemporary dancer, visits Reunion Island to meet humpback whales. Danced improvisations were born from these interactions in sea, which will be the fertile ground for her next creation.
By showing us the process of encountering a wild animal in its natural habitat, Living on the Threshold asks what is happening within us in this space of relationship where we cannot control anything – except our openness to what might happen – and questions our way of inhabiting Life.

The Space Between Us
Director Gabriel Diamond - USA - 6 min.
Sarah Crowell and Keith Hennessey are both dancers, teachers, and activists in the Bay Area. They have known each other for nearly 30 years. But they’ve never collaborated or connected deeply, until now.
The Space Between Us is a radical experiment in the power of bearing witness, inviting vulnerability, and sharing movement, in a time of social distancing and racial reckoning.

The Dance of the Feather is one of the most representative dances of Oaxaca, Mexico, one of the most colorful and ancient, with pre-Hispanic origins that over the years became a way of evangelization. Today it gives identity to a people that, full of pride, continues to represent it.
