The short film UP STAIRS is a dance film that uses the stairs as a performative pretext and a symbol of the utilitarian/ publicly reactivated space, reinterpreted and recreated through interaction with the body, senses and personal filters.
Involving six performers from the contemporary dance community, the metaphorical composition of the film follows a route to de-construct and reconstruct space to meet with the body – from dark to light, from monument to ruin, from green, vivid, natural to technology.
