Experiencing Interruptions?


DANGER is an immersive, timely reflection on current events, a film which criticizes perpetual, omnipresent growth and illustrates the liberation of womens’ bodies from the capitalist oppression of steel.
In a world of climate emergency, DANGER redefines our relationship to space. Are we really more in danger in so-called dangerous and forbidden spaces than in our everyday lives? The true danger lies in letting large corporations re-appropriate common urban spaces for development and profit rather than the greater good. This film is the result of two 10-minute shots in screendance style, in which the dancer and the camera remain in dialogue through symbiotic movement.
