Drowning Shadows takes place solely within the confines of a fountain. The dancer and at times the videographer fight to find movement expression whilst being splashed from every unexpected direction. The forces of the water create a physical limitation that dictates and challenges, and remind how little control one actually have of their environments. But as humans, we adapt- and when the fountain abruptly shuts off, the dancer still feels the weight in the echo and memory of the water, like a phantom limb. The shadow will keep on dancing, long after the water and the body have stopped.
