Sara Gebran's SHE SHRIEKS takes initiation in images by the New York police-photographer from the 1930-40's, Arthur Felig, alias Weegee - the famous. Images depicting the drama of the big city - the absurd, the grotesque, the violence and the after effects of criminal acts. The three dancers interact as wreckless furies in a realm of physical clashes, nude cat-walks, surrounded by the 2 Japanese musician (RUINS, the faster world drum and guitar players) in a post-punk materialized aggression sound, contrasted by roaring silence and few moments of tender femininity. SHE SHRIEKS captures the chaotic despair of today's urban life.
