In this film, I have attempted to place a dancer in a limitless, cinemato-graphic space.
Moreover, he shares, with the camera, a collaborative responsibility for the movements themselves. This is, in other words, a dance which can exist only on film. The movement of the dancer creates a geography that never was. With a turn of the foot, he makes neighbors of distant places.
Being a film ritual, it is achieved not in spatial terms alone, but in terms of a time created by the camera.
