A young dance ensemble, a magical performance, a dissolution of the boundaries between art and reality

In IF IT WERE LOVE we follow a young dance company as they tour Gisèle Vienne’s critically acclaimed “Crowd”, a piece best described as a rave in slow motion, where the dancers control the flow of time with their movements. Ghostly and uniquely cinematic, “Crowd” haunts its performers both on and off stage, as the characters seemingly take on lives of their own. Focusing on the remarkable hypnotic qualities of Vienne’s piece, Patric Chiha has made an atmospheric documentary which explores the intersection of art and reality.
