Spirit Labour follows the practice of sculptor and performance artist Janine Antoni: her collaborations and conversations with the choreographer Anna Halprin and writer Hélène Cixous. Somewhere between a visual essay and a poetic meditation, the film traces the affinities between these diverse artists. It asks: what kind of labour is it, to work communally with the bodies, movements, expressions and affects of others, to dedicate one’s lifework to the othering that issues from these relations?
