A visual abstract poetry of the human being confronted with nature, the machine and himself.



In the center of Romania there is an open pit copper mine, enclosed by erupting sub-volcanoes. Here, man has carved an architectural rock wonder. The sounds of the machines create a mysterious symphony, while the waste paints subtle shades of blue. The walls of the pit frame an unexpected and ongoing emotional story in which vivid eruptions of feelings emerge from the dancers’ bodies. They are linked by a common story, an inherited craziness that flows invisible around them and digs deep in their subconscious.


Sonder had its international premiere in November 2016 at Bestias Danzantes Dance Film Festival in Chile, being awarded with a special mention for best foreign short film.


A Tangaj Dance and Tapioca Film Production, as part of "Room 0003 _ Lines of Flight", a project co-financed by AFCN - The Administration of the National Cultural Fund.
