CONTINUUM

Marikki Hakola

A dance video dealing with war, power and violence. In the world of Continuum, people live and die under circumstances where civilization is only a gauze misting the sight in the reality of violence. In a continual process - continuum - violence spreads from individual acts into structural forms of violence in the society and reflects back again in individual human destinations. The video is a description of a crisis where everyone is a victim.
