‘MONUMENT’ is a highly-conceptual contemporary dance film merging fashion, music and movement, presented in an unconventional setting with a diverse and eclectic cast of dancers. With cutting-edge fashion silhouettes, the viewers can sense that this modern, other-worldly community is struggling to find its identity against a bleak background of conformity. Inspired by the short story "The Lottery" by Shirley Jackson, the film is an artistic collaboration between the minds of Ross Wirtanen, Cora Kozaris and Christina Digiuseppe - three distinctive choreographers, all with bold artistic voices within their work. The soundtrack, provided by duo Röyksopp and Robyn, unifies these three voices with its haunting, electronic march and unusual choice of saxophone and tribal drums.
