The Body of the War is a documentary dance which appears in the gap between Victoria's experience of the outside environment in peaceful Sweden and the inner world full of the war in Ukraine. Her body has become the body of the war. She is searching within herself to find where the war resides. Is it stocked in the cracks, wounds of the body, hair, skin pores, feet, bends and lengths of the body? The film is divided in three chapters and locations that are linked to specific places in Ukraine. The rock on a beach brings Victoria back to houses in ruins, a wheat field on a beautiful day reminds her of the burning fields in south of Ukraine and the safe landscape and statue of the Barsebäcks power plant is a stark contrast to the reality of the Zaporizhzhia NPP which is under constant military attack by the Russian army.
