Into the Hinterlands

The Hinterlands, a Detroit-based performance ensemble, practice a form of training which they see as a provocation towards the unknown – a space both physical and imaginary. Their practice is one of concentrated play, of finding the edge of one’s balance, and the limits of one’s body. Sounds of their post-industrial environment fill the room while the embodied camera immerses the viewer in the ecstatic experience; merging the space of their ludic play with the liminal space of the cinema.
