Private Project


In this experimental dance short, a woman grapples with the first moment of loving something and the fear of losing it. Like a child growing up, she moves wordlessly through changing landscapes, at some points wanting and at some points fleeing a fleet of balloons. She loves them, grows disillusioned with them, hides them away, and then desperately desires them again. This is a cycle which must, at some point, give birth to new beginnings.
