In Wildmenspark we observe ten employees going about the flurry of the present day to day life. Heading for the top requires running or standing still. Can humanity prevail at the speed and efficiency demanded these days? Wildmenspark shows an abstract reflection on our every day rushed and competitive life.

TimeCopy is a short experimental dance film. It was inspired by the Children’s book Momo, from the German autor Michael Ende. The film is about time and the vibe of a mass of people, in this case dancers. In real the dancer danced very slowly. Then it was up to the director to manipulate the speed of the movements, and to manipulate the order of the choreography
Do You Remember that Feeling of Being Small
Director: Bruno Mathez
Choreography: Lizzie Sells & Maria Svensson
Time: 3 minutes
Do You Remember combines dance and video. It is short, playful film based on the specific interaction between moving bodies and the projection screen. The combination of animation and dance results in a visual theatre filled with illusion and nostalgia.
