[ship of fools] 20', dance film, 2021 [ship of fools] is a dance film created as a ritual of embracing chaos and absurdity. Four dancers travel through a multitude of spaces in an empathetic 'boat' that allows them to encounter complex inner worlds with patience and understanding, leaving aside expectations and stereotypes. They embrace the diversity of possibilities of being, finding in movement poetic and creative ways to encounter the unknown and make peace with the absurdity around them. Dance becomes a way to survive soulfully and dive into one's own depths, a way of reconciliation with our chaotic nature.
