In a mysteriously abandoned house, a body dances its memories.
Rite of Passage is a sensory exploration of the act of becoming, of transformation and the search for one’s identity.
An experimental film featuring improvised Butoh dance and rare found footage, it invites us to embark on a visceral and reflective journey about the relation to one’s memories and the place of transformation.
What binds us to the past? What are our own private rites of passage? How can the body express the sometimes violent nature of change? What is the act of "becoming"?
What was your rite of passage?
