THE PLOT

Three performers tell each other about a movie they saw, talking and dancing and calling each other on the phone. They film themselves and each other. Most of this is on their own terms.

This movie is also about three characters: the protagonist, the writer, and the voice actor (who eventually becomes the dancer). It’s a psychological thriller about miscommunication and desire. It’s about training eyes.

Like a rumor or a contagion, the movie plot mutates through each embodied iteration.

This project is currently a work-in-progress and will be completed in July 2022.
