Short Synopsis: Burning Gold - Brief Synopsis:

Burning Gold is an enigmatic art, fashion and dance short film - an emotional response to the pandemic and other unprecedented global events of the last few years.

Three improvisational dancers perform in costumes featuring geometric shapes inspired by natural elements; sun, water and land.

Burning Gold addresses themes of climate change and our human connection to nature and each other.
