About the films...
Hollow Bone - 20mins
Hollow Bone is a dance fable made for today. Like an ancient folktale passed through generations, this dance listens to the songs passed through rocks and bones, water and veins, sand and flesh. Hollow Bone asks both the earth and the body, "What of the old can be called forth to help birth the new?"
Oblivion - 6.5mins
When life ends, where do its memories go? Must we look to History and Nature to find them? Or do they remain in our stead?
No One - 20mins
Our bodies are tamed in this society. We are forced to keep our spirits caged. When we unleash the deepest and most primal parts of our true selves, do we get lost in the destruction or do we find our way to breathe in this world we live in now as boundless no ones?
