A glitchy and mesmerizingly slow Butoh dance film set to the music of Clem Right, Siksya depicts the journey of a woman living in a stark and sterile environment and the moment in which she realizes that she is ‘disappearing,’ and losing her ability to ‘feel.’ She is then faced with the choice of either re-discovering her sensory experience and facing her reality, or remaining in her illusions and fading into the cold environment she exists within.

Siksya was created in collaboration with VFX and glitch artists Hirad Sab & Dalena Tran, with set design by Talon McKee. The film first premiered at the Videodanza Butoh Film Festival in Guyaquil, Ecuador in 2016. It was subsequently featured by the Creator’s Project (VICE).
