This Silence

“Dance is how I express myself. Other artists express themselves by way of painting, music, or acting. I express myself through the expression of the body.” — Doda.
This Silence is a short documentary following dancer and choreographer Gentian Doda. It tells the story through movement and emotions on stage, with a quiet look at New York City streets.
