“Derived from the courageous stories of migration in boats and contradicted with the derogatory term “FOB”, OFF is an exploration of bodies in misplacement. This film makes palpable a vulnerable experience through the sensibilities and motions seen on the skin, spine, hands and feet. The camera creates a placeless of place , ungrounding and situating the body in a void. OFF aims to create an emotional landscape through physicalizing the cinematic experience in order to seize a deeper human connection.” 

Based on a UNICEF Interview with 7 years old Syrian refugee, Malak.
c 2019 Produced at The Ohio State University Department of Dance
