three LUVOSmove® short films

What happens when restrictions on movement and contact restrict our radius of movement, isolate us, limit us to our home, to four walls, perhaps a garden? Thrown back on ourselves and the few closest to us, we begin to travel in our heads, becoming permeable to dreams and fears, fantasies and visions. What we have kept out of our lives for a long time suddenly collapses: surreal and alien, expansive and unstoppable. Threat or hope? Another reality that expands, enriches and questions our world. Which has always been there, perhaps, and which we are only now beginning to perceive...

During the lockdown, three LUVOSmove® dancers from  e b c  produced small videos at home in which they let the creatures from the stage production Hydráos enter their world: an invasion of fantastic creatures into our everyday life.

The films were created in Poznan (Poland), Innsbruck and Linz during the lockdown in online collaboration with choreographer Editta Braun.
