_Synopsis

GHOSTDANCE is a creative and civic response that proposes to fight against the phenomenon of femicide through dance education with the younger generations and thus transmit the values of gender equality. Through gestures and body movements, GHOST DANCE brings together choreographers and activists to make femicide visible, to awaken consciences and influence behaviour, beyond gender, in order to fight for equal rights. Composed of an animated feature film, a documentary series and a social platform, GHOSTDANCE is an ode to the resistance addressed to the younger generations.
