Nudity is not trivial. In a society that tends towards absolute control and prudishness, artists must react. That is why in a new performance of Thierry Smits ANIMA ARDENS he believes that using nude male dancers will make them to look more human, and it strengthens the identification process. However, dancers sometimes build walls around themselves because they are presenting themselves all the time: dancing is very much a confession.

The film will follow making of a new performance ANIMA ARDENS by a Belgian choreographer Thierry Smits.
