Aviva is a uniquely sexy dancing in the streets, sheets, and bars impressionistic take on a movie romance, set in a New York world of gender-fluid and frequently fully unclothed bodies.
Aviva is a young Parisian who develops an online romance with Eden, a New Yorker. After a long courtship they meet in person and fall in love, settling into an intimate relationship that leads to marriage. But their lives are not without struggle – for inside both young lovers exist warring factions of masculine and feminine energies battling for primacy inside and out of the bodies that contain them. Incorporating exultant dance sequences, and featuring a pair of principal characters played by four different actors externally expressing their masculine and feminine sides, Aviva captures a restless, frenzied, and very fluid moment in time – right now – where male-female dynamic is demystified and laid bare like never before.
