Dot Trailer

DOT is the story of an ever-evolving spec through the molecular to the galactic.


A surrealist and wordless puppet tale that inhabits all levels of micro and mega objects, throughout 2D and 3D worlds. It is told with manipulated liquids, dyes, tubes, geometric shapes, vegetables, shadow&light, sticks and bags. It is an experience that encapsulates the vast shades in our humanity, from the delightfulness, to the cantankerousness, the terror and sublime

All viewed from the distance of the stars.
