Os, Ingen

An experimental dance film about primeval human behavior.
4/5

Review

Directed and choreographed by Edith Buttingsrud Pedersen, ‘Os, Ingen’ is an experimental dance film starring Andreas Schlegel, Ronja Seyfried, Gareth McGregor, Julia Stiegler, Sarah Plattner, Anna Seidl and Pia Plug. The artistic performance explores our superseded primate human behavior, which has been lost and molded through the ages. The vastly contemporary choreography, which is largely improvised, showcases themes of nature, survival and identity. A startling watch that is certain to bemuse, perplex and exhilarate viewers.

The 25-minute film, which is predominantly set on an indoor tennis court, takes the audience on an awe-inspiring experience that will no doubt captivate your attention from the offset. Throughout the performance the dancers encompass primeval activity, which is slowly enhanced and intensified. ‘Os, Ingen’ is open for viewer interpretation, but the outlandish innovation and creative originality deserves appreciation and high acclaim.

Edith Buttingsrud Pedersen, along with the seven performers, will fascinate and intrigue audiences by its poetic narrative beauty and stunning technicality. Turi Agostino’s musical composition plays a pivotal role in the overall story telling – coupled with spectacular cinematography by Luka Radovic. ‘Os, Ingen’ is an enthralling watch from start-to-finish, despite its unorthodox and peculiar narrative. Highly recommended.

Brief Synopsis

Aa dance short film that takes place on man-made territory, a group of people forms in a sterile universe and moves in the contradiction between the primordial and the socially accepted. It reflects on instinctual behaviour: What is human instinct? What is suppressed? Is individuality a new form of primal survival? A new Instinct? While questioning the default to blindly follow community, the film is an ode to the primal desire to connect. What would happen if you woke up one day and found your self in a world of blind bodies? We the nobodies, the humans – when did we become somebody?
