How can artists can be integrated within a performance despite the medium in
which they are working? A painter, drawer, filmmaker and dancers move
through a series of structured meetings throughout London, developing
communication and expression. This film is a culmination of months of
laboratories mixing dance on screen with documentary, featuring performers
from the London Contemporary Dance School and fine artists.
