In this short dance film, a woman explores her possi­bil­i­ties in a square frame­work of stationary people. Then, from outside the circle, a young man approaches who encour­ages her to let go of that familiar envi­ron­ment. In Moniek van der Kallen’s directing debut, dance is just as impor­tant as photog­raphy: chore­og­raphy and shots are distinctly tuned to one another. Just like the editing, which comple­ments the chore­og­raphy with, for example, repe­ti­tion and deceleration.
