This short dance film shot in Moab, Utah (United States), explores relationship between the moving body and outdoor environment, asking, “What movement belongs here?” The dancers immerse themselves in the red rock, water, and sand as the perspective shifts from intimate close-ups to grandiose panoramas, bringing the viewer into this physical desert world.
That’s all, folks! We hope you enjoyed the screening. If you have a moment, please take our audience survey to tell us which films were your favorites. And, if you have two moments, our pals at Boulder Arts Week would love your feedback, too!
