Synopsis

Terrain is a journey into the Bardo: an otherworldly space between lives where we find an array of souls from across the world. We slip and at once fall in, leaving the everyday behind.
This docu-dream is a story without words using the language of movement. Through a vivid and surreal landscape, each person encounters a series of distinct individuals and slowly rediscovers a larger collective body. Terrain is a dancing unison of difference. Our bodies bridge gaps between worlds, and with this we invent a new kind of non-verbal truth.
This new interconnectedness propels us back to life again, essentialized by our shared sense of interbeing.

Directors’ Statement

This work creates a new kind of community with an experimental union of art and technology. It invites us to be more aware of our bodies, and to find belonging in something larger than ourselves—a global “us” that needs attention and love. Terrain presents the unknown as an ally and is meant to inspire new means for collective intimacy.
