Outside in

Cecilia dances through a forest but is suddenly surrounded. The forest is not what it appears to be. She’s got to go her own way.

The dance film Outside in is as a tale about taking something back. The film marks dancer and choreographer Tove Skeidsvoll’s directorial debut in collaboration with photographer Petrus Sjövik. Outside In was filmed in an artificial forest at NorrlandsOperan in Umeå, in the north of Sweden, and since then has aired on Swedish television SVT and shown in a numerous international film and dance film festivals. Among other awards Outside in won ”Best Film” at Dance Camera West in Los Angeles and Best Film and The Audience Award at DANCE@30FPS in Ohio.

In 2021 Outside in was a part of Dance (Lens) Cinema 2021 in curator Melissa Ramos program Formscapes. Here is Formscapes Curatorial Essay 23min where Tove Skeidsvoll is featured.
