A live-action VR richly infused with an atmosphere of passion. It takes us through the coursing periods of time, from the 1970s to 2046 and beyond, where the question is harboured, “Can love be found again?

“At the forefront of storytelling”

The Independent

This excerpt was reincarnated as a 2-D “flat” film utilizing kaleidoscopic POVs and experimental editing to evoke a kinetic feeling similar to as it would be inside a VR headset.

This athletically vibrant and sensual experience explores love across a lifetime. Using dance to inhabit a common mortal story of love born, lived, lost, burned, and seemingly gone forever. Dancers Joanna Kotze and Marni Thomas Wood, along with actor Amari Cheatom, take us through the coursing periods of time, from the 1970s to 2046 and beyond, where the question is harbored, “Can love be found again?

“Movement and gesture take possession of the viewer in a way that, for me at least, has never been replicated.”
