REVIEV

UMBRA is a lush representation of what the subconscious looks like in the dream state. It's definitely ruled by dream logic, memories mixed and re-mixed from past present and perhaps even the future. Heavy on semiotics, each fragment tells a story, not with words, but in a purely visceral level. It's almost like a psychotherapy session, unlocking one's mysteries through hypnosis, regressing in time to different periods that have marked the woman's existence. But it is also spiritual, scenes of people climbing infinite ladders in the darkness speak of a soul trying to reach the divine, while being denied of it by her own guilt. A guilt that is not of her cause, but rather from shame, as if she felt she didn't deserve peace. UMBRA has placed a lot of thought on what it shows and what it says through images and sound and dance. There's things that cannot be explained with words, but with movement, action and visuals. A code that can only be shown and not told.
