A selection of short contemporary dance films by choreographers and dancers from Ukraine, in the presence of Stanislava Ovchinnikova (curator and interdisciplinary artist), followed by a QA.

Let The Body Speak is a video archive of works, movement practices and discussions of Ukrainian dancers and choreographers, created to preserve and document the somatic experience and visual evidence of the processes taking place in Ukrainian contemporary dance after February 24, 2022.

"The human body is like an archive, in which the impressions of every event in the life of a human being are stored. Based on this scientifically proven idea, we decided to create a video archive of the works, movement, practices and discussions of Ukrainian choreographers and dancers during the war." Anton Ovchinnikov

Curator: Anton Ovchinnikov
