film by Derin Cankaya, filmed at the video artist residency during contactfestival Freiburg 2017
Rites of Charm wishes to deliver the sensorial and emotional experiences that may arise during Contact Improvisation, focusing on moments of joy and child-like playfulness.
"Every year the contactfestival freiburg supports the production of a video inside the Festival. We invite a different video artist for each edition, to whom we give a total freedom, regarding themes, interest, editing, etc.
We offer this way the event as a frame for the video artists, to communicate through their film, what was calling their attention during the Festival, and how they would like to share about it with others.
The contactfestival freiburg is not responsibe for any chosen material."
