PRECIOUS BALANCE WALK
Award Winning Art Film
”We are all water in the same Ocean.”
– Yoko Ono
6 Nordic Performance Artists invited to perform in and with water in The Sound/Öresund, Ribersborgs beach, Malmö, Sweden. Filmed in 4 days of August 2019. The intention of the film is to create an immediate sense of affinity with water, and to awake impulses and inspiration to explore the fact that our bodies are composed of water and that we live in a hydrosphere. And remind us of how precious water is, and that we need to protect water.
