From the surreal image of a merman on a rubbish tip in Kinshasa, to Covid wary, clingfilmwrapped bodies in an abandoned carpark, this compelling collection of international dance films explores the many ways a moving body can tell a story. Whether explicitly narrative or more abstract, these captivating shorts all share a specific engagement with choreography, offering a different take on the short film genre.
