MORE THAN YOU THINK
Screendance short film by Jacopo Landi and Vanessa Michielon
Cinematography, editing and postproduction: Jacopo Landi
Dance, thoughts and sound: Vanessa Michielon
For Czsikszentmihalyi, flow is the optimal experience, the sense of seemingly effortless movement. Flow occurs when we become so involved in what we are doing that we stops being aware of ourselves as separate from the actions we are performing.
"More than you think" explores the internal invisible dimension of a dancer, her immersion in a state of enhanced perception but also her struggle to escape overthinking.
Indeed, the flow experience involves a lack of the sense of worry about losing control: in this merging of action and awareness, "there is no need to reflect, because the action carries us forward as if by magic".
