The Promise is a dance film about a young man who discovers the stranger he is having a relationship with is his future self. The film cuts-in between a field, a natural open space, and an intimate place that is darker and dreamlike. These conflicting spaces are metaphors of our public and private thoughts. It is a commentary on the challenges of moving forward while aging; I find comfort in familiarity, but my curiosity invites opportunity and new challenges.
