Same Eyes

A performance duet and a dance film inspired by the moment of meeting someone new who you connect with immediately, without words and with only feeling. It engages with themes of internal struggle, healing, and resilience. It shows that beauty aids in mending the soul and we are all stronger together. I experienced this moment of meeting a person with the same sad eyes as mine as I was grappling with my own identity as a Belarussian immigrant in America.
