What is the power of the collective in this age of individualism and self-fulfillment?
A fascination for the phenomenon of folk dance has led performer Nastaran Razawi Khorasani to wonder how people today interpret and express a sense of community. Four individuals are trying to rid themselves of their own identity and blend into the crowd. The four performers’ actions slowly morph into a folk dance. Will they be able to forget themselves?
