Season Syndrome is a short dance movie about the repetition of picking up and moving along, locking up and releasing.

Two people keep tipping over the equilibrium. Both from the inside out and from the outside in. They do not know if it is kindness or cruelty. They only know they will keep moving, manipulating, and rolling in the same direction, attached to each other. She wants him to stay. He does not know how to get out. As they move around the rooms, they hold onto each other while carrying the weight of attachment with them. In the upper world, the seasons come and go. Down here they will not let each other leave. Not even when the door is wide open. How much will you let it hurt, just to have control?
