Description

This candy-colored intergalactic adventure is a dance routine, improv show, and performance-art installation all rolled into one outlandish joyride. From the duo behind last year’s breakout Sundance comedy Swiss Army Man, this wacky film features the Cocoon Central Dance Team of Tallie Medel, Sunita Mani, and Eleanore Pienta. From the opening scene, juxtaposition is the name of the game: Snowy landscapes at the beach, bikini-clad young women moving to the beat of unsexy sound effects, and even the pop-color of outer space is interspersed with oft-meta black-and-white vignettes. But the film’s end result is greater than the sum of its parts, examining the female image, art, film, and the inner life of a performer, all within a DIY aesthetic. Grab your beach ball, and head to this one-of-a-kind adventure.
