Moving Self and Other is an experimental dance film exploring the themes of temporality and emergence. Centered in kinetic cause and effect, the body in movement defines itself in relation to space and the physical material of paper and plastic. The playful and experimental process is juxtaposed by the dark sci-fi aesthetics with the film playing backwards in time, culminating in a total engulfment of the dancer in a cocoon like form.
