You

The film project is a tribute to late UK choregrapher Nigel Charnock, in which dancers Charnock had worked with take elements of choreography and performance text from the archive of his work. You recreates a section of his 1991 solo work Resurrection; a verbal and physical slapstick which reveals the complicated truths about human relationships.
