a DANCE FILM in two parts;
Unknown, yet Known and To Find the Common Frequency. 8 min.
ENCOUNTER explores the curiosity, fear and mistrust that is so common when faced with something (or someone) unfamiliar, and the constant shift between resistance and acceptance, to finally arrive at a place of humility and mutual understanding. The video is in two parts, and originally screened as part of a commissioned piece for dance, video and string quartet in five sections to music by Magnar Åm.
