The final film in Friedland’s “Movement Exercises” trilogy, TRUST EXERCISES is a hybrid experimental dance film which explores the tension between the poetics of group movement and its instrumentalization for capitalist management. Amending the choreography of team-building and the visual grammars of corporate video, TRUST EXERCISES braids together movement from three work spaces: a fictional start-up retreat, a body work session as interview, and a dance rehearsal.
