Director: Colette Bothof
Dance film that tries to visualize the sensation of dance.
Dance film in which the maker gave herself the task of visualising the sensation of dance. Using a combination of choreography, camera work, the choice of shots and editing, we see how a female body washes up on the beach. At first she moves like a fish, but soon starts moving crabwise, walking and dancing. In a seductive game, she drags an observing man in ecstasy with her, until the tide comes in.
