Dance Film

What It Feels Like

Invoking generations of embodied experiences, …what it feels like gives texture to the trappings of female gender—its material expressions, as well as its silences and solitudes. Without words, the film builds layers of sensory data and visual histories to explore the tensions and legacies we hold within.

Shot on the long, lonely high roads of British Columbia, is a powerfully provocative short dance film in which choreography and camera become equal partners in expressing an emotionally-charged moment.
