#undermyskin is an interactive dance film by Enrico Paglialunga and Giacomo Corvaia.
The project was born out of urgency to reflect on today's addictive use of social media. We propose a critical reflection on their toxic and beneficial use. The film is inspired by true stories and experiences of the protagonist dancers themselves. A fictional dance narration of stories of excessive addiction and sometimes dramatic resolutions.
How do social networks affect our identity, emotions and interpersonal relationships?
And how do they influence standards of beauty and widespread forms of cyberbullying and ethnic discrimination?
As in a video game, the viewer is invited to interact by becoming responsible for the consequences of their choices
Social networks can be exciting, welcoming, and fun BUT they can also be damaging, offensive, and addictive.

Social media have the potential to serve as an outlet for creative, educational, and social opportunities, they often instead function as a domain of negativity, bullying, and shame with long-lasting impacts on the emotional well-being of its users.
Art is a powerful tool to promote anti-discriminatory and inclusive perspectives and visions
