Sainte-Monique

The interior world as a conversation with the exterior world. Monique is a complex and layered being, their choices, their demeanor, what is deemed worthwhile of their attention, or not, their eccentricities, emotions, ultimately are a reflection of their inner world in conversation with the exterior one. Through movement study, small and large, we are brought onto a vulnerable journey in the life of Monique, from insignificant moments, to the extremes of on screen emotion. We look for human moments in absurdities, absurdities that are often times not so far from our reality, if we look closely.
