| Synopsis

From the simplicity of the one and the zero, the future is breed.
Natural and digital organism embrace, yet reject each other in a new parallel world. Learning from each other, what shape can human bodies take in the middle of these balancing acts?

“HYBRIS I” is the opening film of a trio of visual dialogues between the physical and the digital world.

The different worlds in each film can be read as an exploration of balance between the human body, the primordiality of nature and an ongoing digitalisation of our world. All inspired by the very origin of movement itself – the birth.

Directed by Aaron Alexander Arnoldt & Corentin Kopp and featuring performance and choreography by Louis Stiens & Shaked Heller (ex Stuttgart Ballet / currently at Zürich Ballet).
