spectra

screendance film

spectra gives insight into synaesthesia, a fascinating phenomenon where the trigger of one sense simultaneously and involuntarily triggers a second sense: music opens a space full of colours, the number four is orange and the touch of velvet tastes like nutmeg. spectra evolves around the individual processing of information received by the senses and celebrates the uniqueness of the perception of each individual. The film is inspired by the director’s research into the relationship between synaesthesia dance and embodiment and her intention to promote diversity in society by the example of synaesthesia.
