Fluidity in medium and in movement, shapeshifting and amorphous, three dancers journey from the depths to the surface. They transition between five different states on their trajectory upwards. The bodies fluctuating fluidly between submission to the medium and resisting it, the water soon gives way to to the life within it, embodying the aqueous force they blend and morph towards the other side of the surface.
In this debut collaboration between choreographer Shaymaa Shoukry and composer and editor Joel Cahen, their shared passion of the water medium is realised with an unusual project. Due to the lack of a physical collaborative space, the collaboration resulted in a video created in an intuitive and fluid creative process.
