For the past few years, students from the Sharon Disney Lund School of Dance in Los Angeles have visited France to participate in a series of workshops held at the National Center for Dance in Paris. Milan-based director Massimiliano Bomba invited the young artists to the gardens of the Château de Voisins—a neoclassical mansion located in Louveciennes—to participate in a project that blurs the line between sculpture and dance.

A dialogue between marble and flesh, the coldness of stone and the warmth of bodies.

Teorema finds itself in the liminal space where the dynamic angularity and softness of choreographed movements coalesce with the stillness of statues. As the film transitions between the airy sculpture garden, claustrophobic corridors and stretched flesh, the film creates a silent dialogue between bodies, objects and spaces.
