In the aftermath of destruction, a lone dancer mourns in the water, processing grief, rage, confusion, and loss with visceral, articulate full-bodied trance. The power of nature looms large over human frailty while urging its resilient spirit to overcome.
Set in the flooded villages of Java, Indonesia, “Leleb” reckons with the despair that surrounds a disappearing home, and is dedicated to those who endure.
