Kate Weare Company's premiere film
Landfall offers a sensory fantasy of naturalism and a hallucinatory look at the human body in nature. Riding a visual edge between organic and artificial, Landfall wonders, yearningly, whether humans belong in the natural world…or are we visitors, outsiders, a kind of alien?
Landfall was shot over a 10-day experimental residency in Asheville, North Carolina during the covid-bound summer of 2020 with filmmaker Jack Flame Sorokin and KWCo dancers Thryn Saxon and Nicole Vaughan-Diaz.
