About the film
The latest work by Gilles Jobin is an augmented artistic experience, the like of which has never been seen in the world of dance before. WOMB is a 3D short film which marries stereoscopic images, dance, visual art and music. It is an existential tracking shot, an abstract analogy of life’s journey that draws on the depth of space and the volume of bodies to trigger a contemplative and emotional response. The Swiss choreographer invited a number of leading contemporary artists to join him on his innovative adventure: Swiss artist Sylvie Fleury, the Belgian costume designer Jean-Paul Lespagnard, and Franz Treichler, frontman of the internationally acclaimed swiss rock band The Young Gods. The project is supported by Pro Helvetia as part of its “Digital Culture” programme.
