film composition | experimental dance movie

The music in Insular Bodies creates surreal worlds – both the bodies and nature sound defamiliarized. Insular Bodies is a play with materialities. What happens when we horizontalize the human and the biological, flesh and stone, wind, water and hair? Insular Bodies draws our attention to the crazy entanglements between the human and the non-human, the living and the non-living, and develops poetic images of an ecology that does not show hierarchies but approaches utopian scenarios of unison.
