DANCING IN THE SHADOWS is the story of a lonesome and deflated figure who aimlessly roams the metropolis at night. They gradually realise that their shadow has come to life, moving freely from and separate to its owner. Their shadow soon discovers new ways to move and dance. The protagonist is first apprehensive about their shadow's new found rhythm of movement, but as they chase their shadow through the streets, they are soon mesmerised. Their shadow then encounters another shadow, together they coalesce and dance, transcending their figures into a new dimension, forming a unison through dance.
