INNRSPCE: Finding Life on Earth is a youth-led media collaboration using dance as a way to indulge in fantasy during uncertain times as a means for survival. We produced a visual album consisting of four character driven solo performances interwoven with brief open-ended group encounters. We combine the use of the body, camera, lighting and space to tell a story from the inside out, honoring the agency and imaginations of young movers. This project aims to pivot the notion of power by revealing the worlds that seep out of our bodies and into the spaces around us.

 

INNRSPCE: Finding Life on Earth is about valuing the integrity of young people for daring to imagine a future where we embody our individual vulnerabilities, strengths and stories to find solace within ourselves during hard times. In this, we are creating space for questions like:

 

Despite the changes in the outside world, how can we find anchorage in the somatic spaces living inside of our bodies? Who could we become through this anchoring? How would we then relate to one another and to our surrounding environments?
