In Arise, Astrid Boons shows us the personal perspective in which the social and societal expectations imposed on women determine which ambitions are appropriate. Three dancers fight against strict physical boundaries that consist of nothing more than light. The bodies move intuitively and in search. They flow and congeal through space until they slowly reveal their strength and vulnerability.
