Inner Terra

‘Inner Terra’ documents and responds to exchanges with individuals affected by crisis, seeking asylum and being at the fringes. Moments of being pushed and of attempting to hold on, of loss and of risk, of compassion and of community are punctuated with echoes of shared dance and play. ‘Inner Terra’ explores the continued search for a connection and identity, the human capacity to reach out and the failure of our limitations.
