Migration Canada 2015 – 5min50sec
On an island in the Saint Lawrence seaway, preparation for a migratory journey is expressed through percussive movement and vocals set within an unusual natural landscape. This short film follows 10 percussive dancers who rely on their hands, feet and sonic bodies to create a unique soundtrack as they move through water, wind and sand interpreting the preparation, departure, and flight of their collective journey.
