'Lean/In' celebrates the potential of space, sun and human energy. The film centres round 'Dutch/Light' a sculpture whose form derives from Bradley's childhood greenhouse, a frame-work of transparency, light and creative growth. Filmed between lockdowns, Cisarikova's dance draws from this space to explore how a structure we inhabit informs who we become. We hope this film brings a blast of sunshine into difficult times.
Music 'Heaven or Las Vegas' by Cocteau Twins.
Collaboration with The New Style Pictures & Peter Wolf.

M. Cisarikova was commissioned by Malin Smedhagen to choreograph and star in Mahdi.
Wants to take the audience on the emotional and uncomfortable journey of a female refugee. Set in an abstract setting of black and white and stripped from any recognisable context, the film focuses on the internal journey of a mother who is trying to keep her child safe. Anxiety, motherhood, a dream of a better life, confusion and the fragility and innocence of a child are explored in “Mahdi”. A film about human emotions without borders.
