Threshold is a 360-degree dance film that opens a portal into the transformational journey of four women. Starting as isolated individuals grappling with the effects of trauma, the dancers create a ritual space to move in solidarity together with resilience and strength. Threshold highlights these themes not only through choreography, but also through spatial exploration of shifting 360-degree environments.
