Six Black dancers with diverse biographical and dance backgrounds develop new ways of thinking, being and acting. They determine images and ideas they have of themselves and how they want to be seen by others. The film illuminates the world of thought and the process behind a dance performance by Grupo Oito: »Cleanse/Nu« is a political statement, a performative self-empowerment and cleansing. The title of the film, Orí, is Yoruba and means head – the head as the key to one’s own emancipation and as a connection to the spiritual world.
