Femme (6′, 2016)


Backstage, a dancer rehearses the lines of a character who, just like herself, struggles with the physical discipline that ballet demands. What does it mean to be beautiful and feminine? Constrictive ideals seem to be transmitted through the generations. As she prepares herself for her performance, she encounters the power and sensuality of her visceral body in her search for freedom.
