The Wolf Dances – Harab

In the dance film Vlucht, part of The Wolf Dances, director Wiam Al-Zabari and choreographer Krisztina de Châtel (who both fled their countries of origin) give us a feel for what it is like to have to flee by taking us on an anxious journey away from our own, familiar Dutch surroundings. Looking through the eyes of one of the people left behind, we see a group of dancers fleeing from a typical Dutch village and heading towards their freedom, through woods and dunes into the sea. On the way, they struggle with unpredictable forces of nature; symbols for the obstacles that have to be conquered to bring their escape to a positive outcome
