Short Film

Set on the pacific coastline, Manifesting the Hidden is a dance for camera work in which contemporary contact improvisational dance is intertwined with aikido movements, in a quest to find the universal elements within. The movements and creatures of the ocean are echoed in the movements and struggles of the dancers. The parallels created reveal the connections we have to this often unseen world.
