Living in a world of silks and stairs, a lone dancer grapples with gravity, risking, releasing, struggling and succumbing to this inevitable force of nature.
Let Go is the second in a series of four short dance films.
Writer/director/producer: Elif Isikozlu
Elif Isikozlu says:
“An unending ascent and the surrender in falling drive this film. Silk and wood are such beautiful materials, each connected to the performer’s struggle to survive in this closed world.”
