3. Sara Augieras - The Reeds

Created as part of Greenwich Dance’s Make Your Own Dance Film series, Sara worked with choreographer Mathieu Geffré and film maker Roswitha Chesher to tell the story of two characters facing the North wind. An oak, confident and rooted, assures himself he is strong enough to resist anything. Meanwhile a quiet and vulnerable-looking reed swings with every blast. At the very last gust of wind the Oak is uprooted and the Reed bends.
