Drawing Blank

Emily Honegger

In a world where the surreal mingles with transience, renewal and constant change, Drawing Blank tells a story through dance and stop-motion painting. The main character, played by dancer and choreographer Emily Honegger, discovers magical properties in a discarded ink sketch. A miniature dance partner comes to life and inspires movement in her world of paper and ink.
