A couple dances at the ruins of an abandoned station in the industrial city of Campinas, Brazil. Aren't we going to Moscow? is a dance of an in-between time, shot in VHS. Inspired by Anton Chekhov's The Three Sisters, the dancer's research vocabulary creates a delirium, an implosion, and a gesture of escape.

During a night visit to the museum, a woman encounters several visitors behaving strangely. She is meandering through the exhibits when one painting catches her attention. She feels captivated by it, and time stands still.

Cross-Cuts

Catherine Van Campen, 2023, NL, 11 min, 0+

Who were we as a young person? How will we be old? Where does time meet? Cross-Cuts is about the older and younger in ourselves. About the desire for earlier and the looking forward for later. It speaks about the insurmountable boundary that time draws between different phases of life, in which each generation reacts differently to crises. One vital and free, the other hesitant and cautious.
