Project Summary – Vacsora Parti is a dance film that follows two dancers and a jazz musician as they work on an elegant, yet eerie dinner party. The short narrative film explores the disappearance of the arts throughout the pandemic and examines the space left by the loss of cultural events, such as dinner parties, banquets, live music, and performance. The film aspires to ignite hope for a future that values arts, culture, and entertainment.

ACT 1: ICU
Project Summary – ACT 1: ICU is an excerpt of a longer film that explores the loss of different senses through site-specific dances. ICU follows two dancers as they explore a foreign space without the sense of sight. The film is a collaboration between the dancers and videographers, who have separately taken on the task of conveying the absence of a sense. Together, the artists are investigating awareness, perception, disorientation, and reality through the exploration of foreign spaces.
