Jenni Nyberg’s documentary Siéva is an intimate and lyrical look at a gentle and poetic form of street dance. A deliberate rejection of the hyped-up cockiness of traditional b-boying, siéva dancing is soft and vulnerable. It’s a style for exploring your shyness and doubts, your fears and hopes. Nyberg’s film follows a group of young dancers and shows how they use siéva to express their insecurities and dreams.
