"Quarantine focuses on the beauty and physicality of pure movement. Through repeated movement, the performers musculature contorts and twists both her body and psyche into extremes. The film challenges our reading of pain, pleasure, endurance and torture.
The sounds of the body in motion are recorded through an electronic stethoscope located inside the performers body. Theses noises are mixed with the guttural sound of the physical exertion and the body impacting on itself and the floor surface. Breaths, heartbeats and tendons provide a rich tapestry of sounds, which emphasise deeper into motion, rhythm, time and space."
