This is a music film project, inspired by the following questions.
In the face of uncertainty, due to life-threatening illness, how do we step into the dark space of the unknown? In a realm of chaos or pain, is it possible for people to act as medicine? What is the potential of a “science of hope”?
*Set to Fever Ray’s I’m Not Done, this film and dance project is a visual translation of ongoing research. When battling serious cancer, for example, can social support, and even radical practices of hope – that which moves beyond a silencing, a coping, or a philosophy alone – shift disease, distress, and dislocation, to the cellular level?
Call for participants
We seek people who: are in need of healing, who have a personal tie to these questions through family or dear persons, or who are “healers” themselves, including those in professions of medicine, and the arts (dance, visual art, as well as poets, musicians). We also seek participants in cancer support groups/people in current networks of social support. The desire of this film project is to both represent existing links and create new chances for peer support, deepened hope and art-making which may dance back against disease, definition, or fear alone.
*Our “Public” Day will be Tuesday, May 17, 8:00 PM, Please contact Marie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
