Syncretic Noise


Good imagery and very good dancing expose an interesting point of view of industrialization, compliance and revolt. It shows how we are building separation from nature, but nature finds its way to move from within us.


A man dances secluded from a city in battle with itself. Syncretic Noise explores how we respond to chaos around us. The dancer’s natural motion continues across cuts over discontinuities of space from forest landscapes to gritty urban life. In a silent dialogue of motion the dancer’s movement convey a struggle to find solace between his permanent objectivity from societal indignations and using dance as an engine to find inner peace.
