This film was selected at the Berlinale – Berlin IFF 2020 (Panorama) 

They are fifteen young dancers from diverse origins and backgrounds. They are on tour to dance “Crowd”, a piece by Gisèle Vienne inspired by the raves of the 90s, about emotion and time perception. Following them from theatre to theatre, “Si c’était de l’amour” documents their work and their strange and intimate relationships. Because the boundaries are blurring. The stage seems to contaminate life – unless it’s the other way around. From a dance documentary, the film then takes a troubling journey through our nights, our parties, our loves.
