Experimental dance film created by Max Levy, during the COVID-19 quarantines in April 2020.
"These days, I feel a certain claustrophobia whether I’m inside or outside, escaping from one form of pressure to another. I feel I’m walking a tightrope of sanity doing what I do: to choose to make art and dance for this one lifetime of mine. It feels like an alleyway with no room to move, yet simultaneously an oppressive openness where I don’t know where to begin.
This film is an experiment to capture that scratching paranoia of a tentative life into movement; then to capture that movement to film. This is my first film, and I wanted to make a work that was intentionally divergent from the traditional constraints of a stage."
