Alicia Cabrero, 2014, 35 mins
A screening organised by Attakkalari Centre for Movement Arts, with the support of Alliance française de Bangalore.
“Clémence” was created in 2014. The film has won prize as the best project of the year from the “High Conservatory Professional of Dance in Madrid”. It was projected in Festivals in Spain and France. It is a 35 min. film dance where the language of movement, interpretation and image come together to tell the story and experiences of Clemence, the protagonist. The silent film, the belle epoque, Tango and Charleston are present in honor to the first half of twentieth century in France.
Clemence suffers a sudden change in her life, forcing her to confront new situations within her environment. Contact with the other realities modifies her. She discovers how a simple gesture can affect her sensitivity as a woman.
