InnerSmoke POOL 17 - INTERNATIONAL TanzFilmFestival BERLIN

In Hoa Binh, rural area in Northern Vietnam, large expanses of white smoke can be observed every day. Whether at roadsides, in fields, or even backyards, locals light fires every night around 5 p.m. Whether fire is lit in the idea of cleaning, purifying or honouring the deceased, this omnipresent phenomenon becomes obsessive. Inner Smoke is a dance-embodiement of the fire and smoke process, following the Vietnamese cult of the dead culture. This film deals with the space left for renewal after one’s disappearance, while questioning what remains from the past, what we can not see, like ashes that we are no longer paying attention to.

China 2016, 00:17:18

Imagine: human beings return to their original state and conventional rules no longer applies. Imagine: human beings being objectified and the next dominating species have a completely different social system. What would the world be like? Avant-garde independent Chinese dance artist and choreographer Er Gao leads a cast of international dancers, performing in the nude in the ancient village of Huadu, to present an absurd scene born out of the irony of force-fed education and twisted social awareness. (The programme contains nudity )

1. IL MIO GRIDO by Vito Alfarano

Made in the prison of Rovigo city is the epilogue of an emotion that between body and sound becomes art. The white background eliminates the possibility of placement in space. The nudity expresses power, softness, vibrancy and fragility. Not knowing anything about the body that is on the screen the viewer will not see the prisoner, but the MAN. The single voice is a treasure chest of information and emotions, intimately linked to their own experience and the place from which you came from. The voices of the detainees and electronic sounds compose the original music.

Aviv Maaravi

Israel 2016, 00:10:45


Black Box is an enigmatic performance/installation featuring a solo performer Shamel Pitts, a former company member of Israel’s iconic Batsheva Dance Company. Buoyed by his trademark expressive movement, Pitts employs spoken word, evocative lighting, and avant-garde expressionism to construct a personal, poetic narrative about search for identity and striving for survival amidst impermanence. Obliquely referencing the flight data recorder, BLACK BOX transcends traditional travel journal format, becoming instead a record of a life as – in a nod to Nina Simone – a “young, gifted and Black” artist, thriving in constant motion.
