The Whirl

Observing the refugee crisis in Europe and how it has changed people's perception of far and near, of borders, traveling and movement we have made an attempt to change this impression into a dance film.

As the world is in constant movement so are the people. History likes to repeat itself and always goes in circles.
How to find a place that can be a shelter and home when everything is constantly changing, keeps being an open question.
Where to draw a border between what is yours and what is mine?
The whirl towards a new better world, a place of refuge, shelter and comfort keeps speeding up every day, but where does it stop?

Director Biography - Eva Campos Suárez

Born in Sabadell, Spain, in 1991.

After finishing her studies in Fine-Arts at University of Barcelona in 2013, she decided to move to Brussels, where she started a life as a freelance photographer and videographer with at first contact of the choreographer Marie Martinez.

Then a new world opened in front of her: dance, performance, theater and circus disciplines, mixed or not. She discovered rooms/halls where the presentations of artistic projects took place and where she could have contact with the artists. There she met a lot of international artists and she learned plenty of new concepts. In that journey, a lot of new ideas came and she decided to start them when she met Ana Cembrero Coca and La Ignorancia, a big reference to her.

Interested already in the screendance/videodance/filmdance (with the university projects "Rutina (ESTRÉS) vs. (NOMÉS) rutina" and "La cadena del problema"), she encountered the dancer Marta Kosieradzka and started to create together. Their first project was the dance trilogy "The Three Oddest Words" (2014-2015) which the first and second part ("Future" and "Silence") had the premiere in Cinema Nova (Brussels). She became then a filmmaker and found her way of making dance film.

After two years and half being in Belgium, she decided to move back to Spain to start her project [Plat Artístic], a platform to enrich culturally her town, Cerdanyola del Vallès.
