This short film looks to explore the most characteristic and common feelings which migrants have to go through (limbo, identity, immigration and adaptation) whilst trying to integrate into a new system and culture, which in this case it is to become a Londoner.

We used contemporary dance as it is one of our passions and to also demonstrate these feelings in a non-verbal manner, combining cultures, using different attires with distinct fabric, music styles and dance genres, performed by international professionals and also by means of dance improvisation combined with planned choreography, all set and developed by migrants in London.

Este cortometraje busca explorar las sensaciones más características y comunes a las que un migrante debe enfrentarse (limbo, identidad, inmigración y adaptación) en su intento de integrarse en un nuevo sistema y cultura,
que en este caso es el de Londres.

Utilizamos danza contemporánea al ser una de nuestras pasiones y ser un medio ideal para explorar éstos sentimientos de una manera no verbal. Combinando culturas, diversos trajes con uso de telas distintas y géneros musicales y estilos de danza variados. Un proyecto estipulado y realizado por artistas profesionales, todos inmigrantes en Londres, mediante la combinación entre improvisación y coreografía planeada.
