Projects & Research // ALL IT TAKES (2022)


A film by Meritxell Aumedes

Preview September 29 from 6:30 pm as part of the film night of the (Rh)einfach Fest in the TanzFaktur Cologne

Based on the piece ANIMA, which Emanuele Soavi incompany developed together with the video and performance artist Meritxell Aumedes Molinero especially for the performance in the rooms of a hotel, the film ALL IT TAKES is dedicated to what maybe always has been and maybe always will be: the soul.

Two mysterious figures – a man in a black coat with a small suitcase, a woman with a bandaged breast on a bed – encounter enigmatic symbols and obscure locations, experiencing the most diverse stages of transformation on their longing and hopeful search for completion and wholeness.
ALL IT TAKES approaches the duality of body and soul in a very poetic way and embeds the mute performance of the bodies in music and animation.
