Into the Hinterlands

Film Still from Into the Hinterlands

Julia Yezbick, 39 min. (2015)

The Detroit-based performance ensemble, The Hinterlands, practice a form of ecstatic training which they see as a provocation towards the unknown. The “hinterlands” evokes an unknown space both physical and imaginary whose mystery is its very source of generation and from which true creativity emerges. Their practice is one of ecstatic play, of finding the edge of one’s balance, and the limits of one’s body.

Into the Hinterlands premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival — Forum Expanded, in February 2015.
