Originally created as a five-screen installation, this film draws from a movement phrase free of any specific meaning and was subjected to subtle and exaggerated changes while traveling through four distinct episodes recalling daily routine. The vignettes are thematically connected and inspired by the works of Martin Arnold as well as the choreographic/video dance work of Sylvain Poirier and Yves St. Pierre. This creation reflects on life's mundane routine, a desire for a stable home landscape while still trying to weave the life of a dance artist in the midst of it all. Desire to dance. Desire for love. Desire for escape.
