The soul leaves the body. Drawn by intense light, the spirit discovers its twin self, its feminine side...its guide in the beyond. Inspired by the myths of the afterlife, this allegorical dance piece illuminates the soul's quest by exploring movement and the human body in new and astonishing ways. An evocation of the origins of the world. A hymn to the beauty of the human form. A celebration of movement. A metaphor for life and death. Film without words.

1996, 26 min 22 s
