Parallel Paradises: A two screen video installation shot in Japan and Ecuador.

Rin and Mai are two dancers of parapara, a disco dance trend popular in Japan. Their perfectly synchronized movements have a very precise pace and protocol, like they were speaking an unknown language. They perform in a forest were their figure and attitude is heterogeneous to the organic movement of the nature around them, both worlds exist complete in the same space but do not touch each other.
