W / M (mirror)

Kalle Nio

The film shows two dancers, a man and a woman, in a theatrical setting. The image of their similar shaped bodies is cut in half and reflected by a double-sided mirror. The mirror in the middle of the projection screen makes the female and male bodies mix. By moving in the exhibition space, the spectator can see different versions of the choreography of gesture and touch.
