dance movie about otherhood

When a body is put into relationship, what does it say? How can it be looked at? How can it collaborate with other bodies even if they seem hostile? How can
it recognize their identities, potentials and limits? How can it be received? How does it receive them? How do I keep a fluid perception of the border between what is me and what is not me? Going slowly up and downstairs. Walking or rolling, adapt to the presence of other bodies on the way. Unforseen a priori, the choreographic action reveals the reasoning of the body through slowness, repetition, adaptation
and subtle changes of physical states. The work speaks of the relationship / transformation; bodies before an encounter and bodies during an encounter. Identity and otherness refer to each other while a new body is born, the result of adaptation.
