StM – the short film
This short film is based on the performance StM, where the dancer’s voluntary objectification questions the participation of the observer. In the film the camera is given the role of a subject.
The film premiered 29 April at mdtsthlm.se and was available to stream between 29 April–21 May.
Now available again for a limited period until 6 June.
