AVIVA

WORLD PREMIERE SXSW 2020
WINNER OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENT CHOREOSCOPE 2020
Synopsis
Aviva is a young Parisian who develops an online romance with Eden, a New Yorker. After a long courtship they meet in person and fall in love, settling into an intimate relationship that leads to marriage.

But their lives are not without struggle — for inside both young lovers exist warring factions of masculine and feminine energies battling for primacy inside and out of the bodies that contain them.

Incorporating exultant dance sequences, and featuring a pair of principal characters played by four different actors externally expressing their masculine and feminine sides, Aviva captures a restless, frenzied and very fluid moment in time — right now — where the male-female dynamic is demystified and laid bare like never before.
