“Thoughts As Storms” is a short dance film in two parts by Nicole Philippidis that examines the effects of a major disruptive event on human relationships and the environment. Part 1 looks at the psychological toll on two people as a result of the pandemic. Forced into isolation, the sense of being trapped, physically, mentally and emotionally, lead us to unnatural forms of communication and disembodied forms of connection. Part 2 looks at the fragility of human life and the delicate state of the environment that we know could so easily be tipped out of balance. The setting moves from a lush verdant field to a barren river bank, as the characters lose their connection and seek to find it again.
