AWOL (“Absent Without Leave”) explores synergies between humans and nature’s mystical creatures and the significance of sensuality on an analogue, spiritual and virtual scale. Coproduced by brut and Tanzhaus Zürich, Malika Fankha created 3 music videos for AWOL that take us into a world of elves, trolls and other hybrid beings who challenge our thinking in stereotypes and duality due to their queer, volatile essence. The first video of the series, KARMA, will be presented in the course of imagetanz 2021 on March 17th. The other two videos, LAVA and ODE, will be published as part of the Tanzhaus Zürich programme on April 30th.
