The film investigates the influence of the indeterminate electric weather on bodily imagination. Several young Jamaicans, in company of the artist, perform solo and group dance routines that refer to the popular, highly sexualized but also spiritual Jamaican “dancehall”. The sounds of thunderstorm and rain become the beats to which the choreography is synched. Tropical rain and sweat dissolve the boundaries between outdoors and indoors, merging nature and human into one unit.

Cecilia Bengolea (Buenos Aires, 1979) works on a range of media, using dance as infused with the symbolic energies of nature and as a tool for radical empathy and emotional exchange. She develops a broad artistry where she sees movement, dance and performance as animated sculpture.
