Human Animals Dance

GERMANY 2014, 29′
Production: Cinetrix



The film treats the aspect of the relationship between animal and human beings. Five dancers and the choreographer Martin Nachbar explore in sensual approaches the possibility of understanding an animal and the boundaries of human movements through dance. Performing on a dance floor — isn’t this similar to the performance of a trained animal, and is art shamanism?
