Concept Description

"The Kingdom" is a dance theatre film, that portrays a man's attempt of releasing himself from the ghostly moorings of his father.
"The Kingdom" emphasizes the aftermath of patriarchy and toxic masculinity in the concept of male identity.
"The Kingdom" is the embodiment of memory through movement, space, landscape and architecture. It is the vestige, in body and word, of a dystopian past.
