Thoughts As Storms” is a dance film in two parts that examines the effects of the pandemic 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 our connection to the delicate state of our environment, that we know could so easily be tipped out of balance.
