Elsewhere is a surrealist dance film, questioning our perceptions of what is inside and what outside. A dream of being someone else, somewhere else, the film blends the female body with nature and architecture. Are we all the same, trees, buildings and humans? Do we exist in multiplicity of places at the same time? How do our thoughts/dreams change reality?
Shot primarily on mobile device over three years and two continents, Elsewhere is a fairy-tale like escapism into the multiplicity of oneself and our surroundings.
The creation of this film was possible though The Ice Box residency in Philadelphia (2015) and Derida Dance Center residency (2016) in Sofia, Bulgaria. Filming locations in Bulgaria are Vitosha and Teteven mountains.
