Just Dance: Inter-Liminal – NOWNESS

A sparse tarmac yard sets the stage for this magnetizing collaboration between filmmaker Daveion Thompson and choreographer Juri Onuki, in an evocative exploration of the relationships between objects, movement and aesthetics. It is a film in which the body’s shifting shapes, performed by American dancer Lloyd Boyd, open up bigger questions that reach beyond the purely physical. In the collaborator’s elastic project, things—removed from their everyday context (in this case, a silver chair)—become a tool to explore wider questions about identity and being. As the Brooklyn-based director explains: “This project is a visual representation of my internal and external experiences when it comes to operating outside of the societal binary. The abstract dialogue examines a personal narrative that has informed my identity, and my existential view. I have always existed in a socio-liminal space.”
