Event Description

Spiralling into Desire is a Movement x Film collaboration that documents a woman's descent into her deep body, as she follows her desire. Bringing together dancer, authentic movement and mental health practitioner Brinda Jacob-Janvrin, filmmakers Roohi Dixit and Ziba Bhagwagar, this experimental film is a visceral journey into the liminal space inhabited by the mover as she navigates the inner and outer worlds. Synopsis Spiralling into Desire traces a woman's descent into her deep body to access and retrieve her true autonomy. The film also draws parallels from the first epic poem 'The descent of Inanna' which narrates the story of the Sumerian goddess Innana’s descent into the underworld, to visit her sister Ershikegel - the queen of the dead. Separated, the two sisters represent the Madonna/Whore split, a dangerous consequence of patriarchy. The descent begins the journey towards the healing of this split. This experimental film is set at the intersection of the arts, psychology and spirituality. Inspired by the practice and discipline of Authentic Movement and Natural Dreamwork, the film builds on both - the creative process and the witnessing process, as it explores the question ‘how do we hold desire in our bodies’. Credits: Movement Artist: Brinda Jacob-Janvrin. Filmmakers: Roohi Dixit and Ziba Bhagwagar. Movement Dramaturg: Berlin based dancer & choreographer, Lina Gomez. Cinematographer: Preetha Jayaraman. Produced by: Studio for Movement Arts and Therapies Trust and Zero Rules Filmhouse, and partly supported by Goethe-Institut Bangalore. The screening will be followed by a workshop, based on Authentic Movement, facilitated by the artist of the film, Brinda Jacob-Janvrin.
