SOUFFLE PROVISOIRE (2016)

A short dance film inspired by Françoise Sagan’s book "Les merveilleux nuages" and the challenges facing her female character. By combining the body and the expression with film making, Souffle Provisoire focuses on the use of dance as a medium to express emotion. Filmed in Nice France against the Mediterranean scenery and Sea, it draws inspiration from its surroundings and natural elements. By shifting the focus from person to person, it exposes moments in life which are both unique to the individual and shared by everyone alike; moments that border the realms of reality and dreams, where the smallest details in body language can reveal our true selfs. It searches the truth and honesty of feelings, which are not acted, but instead brought to life and made real. Moments that are alive and moving, even if it is at most for only a short breath.

It was previously showcased at Mostra Viva del Mediterrani (2018) in Valencia Spain, the dance festival Les Deux Terres (2016) and the film festival Weekend tout court(s)(2016) in Cannes.
