4. Alessandra Seutin - INA (LIGHT)
In director Aneil Karia and choreographer Alesandra Seutin’s raw and charged film INA (LIGHT) two dancers struggle through the fear-drenched darkness of oppression and the feverish chaos associated with it. Only having battled with this do they get their first glimpse of the light - and the freedom and serenity that comes with it. This collaboration from Sadler's Wells and Channel 4's Random Acts first premiered in January 2019 and feels just as relevant and poignant today.
Created in Quarantine
