Join us as we kick off the festival with two exciting movement films! These are two films you won't want to miss catching on the big screen. Eve 2050 and Home Exercises both look at what the evolution of movement and we might feel our bodies in the future.
Eve 2050 by Van Grimde Corps Secrets. MTL, CDN, 2018
We are in 2050, in a world where being human no longer means what we’re used to. The technological and biomedical advances of the last 30 years have changed the status of the body and redefined identities. Some humans have embraced technological advances, augmenting their bodies with artificial devices. Others have preferred to hybridize with other species, making organic and living material their own technology. Still others cherish and honour the original body, refusing any modification or lacking the means for enhancement. The web series Eve 2050 takes us to the heart of this amazing world through 5 episodes that follow Eve’s journey. A symbolic character, of all cultural origins, both child and adult, male, female, transgender made of flesh or artificial, Eve 2050 offers a unique glimpse at humans of the future.
Home Exercises by Sarah Friedland NYC, USA, 2017
Home Exercises is a short dancefilm and hybrid documentary investigating the gestural habits and choreographies of aging individuals in their homes.
We hope you will join us after the screening for a talk back with the artists! Afterwards we will all head over to the Lululemon Lab for opening party celebrations and an interactive installation by Chimerik Collective.
