OnlineApproximate running time
15 minutes, no intermission
The poetic Laterna magika dance film, directed by Jakub Jahn and choreographed by Nataša Novotná, responds to the current situation and presents a view of the “new normal” as bringing hope, opportunity and transformation.
The “new normal” is a sociological term defining a situation emerging in the wake of change. The film reacts to the current state of affairs in a broad metaphorical focus, anticipating in its own way the new normal we are approaching as hope, opportunity and transformation.
Everything proceeds as metaphor. We do not tell a story, nor do we show specific descriptive situations and relations. Everything is in motion – the dancers, the space, the camera. Organic and inorganic matter blends. We seek the limits of stylisation and realism.
Transformation results from inner seeking and struggle, in which a person transcends himself /herself and acquires a new set of dispositions.
New Normal is hope.
The film New Normal received the Best Cinematography award at Experimental Film and Music Video Festival in November 2021.
