Reversals

Pauliina Salminen

A choreography in an urban space shows a person trying to adapt to city structures, looking at cracks in walls and reflections, as if searching for a passage to another space. Her body movements confront the built environment and challenge gravity. Finally, the person and her movements proceed in an underwater environment where all usual points of reference disappear.
