Eleven naked men audition and rehearse for the premiere of the new dance piece by Belgian choreographer Thierry Smits, Anima Ardens.

What if the last territory where we could be ourselves and have complete freedom was our own body? This hypnotic documentary traces the preparations for an avant-garde piece steeped in dark, primary rituals with 11 dancers performing entirely naked on stage. Breathtakingly beautiful, the performance celebrates the male body in all its complexity, power and vulnerability…. A vibrant and unconventional work that invites the viewer to question the under-representation - even the taboo - of male nudity in the performing arts.
