INSTINCT Film Iris van Peppen c/o
Its already some time ago that I was involved in this project... very precious memories. Have a look!
In our first performance, INSTINCT, the research was primarily based around the question if something like the human instinct exists. The audience is placed in an intimate setting, first standing around the dancers and later sitting literally in the middle; becoming the silent partner of a ritualistic performance where three dancers reveal human and animal instinctive movements. By showing how these movements are intertwined, we are confronted by our own (human) nature.
Based on this performance, a 7 minute dancefilm was made and shown at Cindedans shorts, but also in the US, China, Greece, Turkey and Italy.
