Light textures on black background. is part of an audiovisual artistic research project that tries to transfer expressive and emotional concepts to the screen with moving images and, therefore, intentionally lacks formal, narrative and structural aspects. Any resemblance to reality is purely coincidental and a chance accident in the production process.

A group of dancers and musicians come together once a month to explore the interaction of the sound environment and the processes involved in transformation of corporality.

Initially, a fascination for the diversity of forms, which human beings from the depths of ages invented to represent figures. Create bridges and flows between mythology and history, resuscitate these statuettes. Extracted from the showcases of museums Astarte, Eve, the Great Goddess, Aphrodite, all these primordial women reappear in an abstract landscape reality. Music, like water, coats and wraps.

By a process in the images, a scene of daily urban life turns into a timeless tableau, echoing, in reverse angle, N.H.Mak’s narration, thus opening up its perceptive field to the poem’s mental imagery.



The Okrestin Sisters

Belarus Free Theatre
Belarus / 2020 / 0:15:00

In the Okrestin prison in the Belarusian capital Minsk, detainees await their appearance in court. This can take days, or sometimes weeks. The cells are overcrowded and the guards are violent. Food and drink is handed out sparingly and the prisoners have no access to a toilet. Outside, friends and family protest. They see a constant stream of full police vans entering the building and sometimes a trickle of detainees are released. With terrifying realism, the Belarus Free Theatre reenacts the treatment of opponents of President Lukashenko. Banned in Belarus, the company now operates from London. Its activist theater is devoted exclusively to exposing human rights violations in general and those in Europe’s last dictatorship in particular. Since the recent presidential elections and the ensuing popular uprising, their message has become even more meaningful
