| Synopsis

“Shapes of Aether” is a dance film that explores the concept of aether through movement language.

It is a testament to the power of the four elements, earth, air, fire, and water, and what holds them together. Through the dancer’s body, the different elements communicate, embodying a connection between the human body and the energy that surrounds it.

The film features the movements of the body, words, sounds, and human understandings combined to create an immersive experience, inviting the audience to connect with the primal forces of nature and reflect the pulse of the earth beneath their feet.
