Rite of Passage
This film is presented during the event La Nuit de la danse on March 18, 2022 at Théâtre Outremont.

A man enters a passage and must choose to accept either the persistence of time or the will of nature. Through choreography and improvised movements, this short film is a playful meditation on the body, space, and the present moment. The film was shot for Cinemovement Laboratory VI: Solo in Studio Plesungan, an art space run by Indonesian artist Melati Suryodarmo in northern Solo, Indonesia.
