OFF LIMITS/ Dance film


Directed by Severine Reisp

Produced by Severine Reisp


Camila Schaefer
Victor Wisehart



The movie is listed in competition for the 2018 PAMA for :
– Best Dance

PITCH : Off Limits is a short dance film about the power dynamics in a relationship. It depicts the seduction of a young woman and the passion in a relationship. It is an excerpt of the director´s longer dance film “Giselle”.







Director Statement

“I believe that dance can sometimes say more than words concerning emotions and political topics and that a narrative dance film can merge new choreography, music and current social issues.
Encouraging women is also important to me and as a director I felt empowered to let my own visions come to life.
Before enrolling in college I was a professional ballet dancer with State Street Ballet and Joffrey Ballet in New York. Hence, I see directing as choreography on the screen.

Director Biography – Severine Reisp

Severine Reisp was born in Bielefeld, Germany in 1994. At the age of 16 she received a scholarship to attend a boarding school in England where she was able to combine her academic studies with a high level of dance training. She speaks German, English and French fluently. During her teenage years she received scholarships to attend ballet summer intensives at Joffrey Ballet School, Rosella Hightower in Cannes, Northern Ballet School in the UK, Festival Ballet in Santa Barbara, California and Scuola Danza Hamlyn in Florence. After graduating from secondary school in England with honours in five A-levels, she was accepted at Warwick Business School in the UK but she decided to continue with dancing first and deferred her place to college. She was invited to become a trainee with Joffrey Ballet School in New York and later with State Street Ballet in Santa Barbara, California. To further combine her academic interests with dance, she eventually decided to enrol at Sarah Lawrence College at which she received the presidential scholarship. She moved back to New York and at Sarah Lawrence, she has been able to combine her interests in theatre, film and dance. She was able to make her own visions come to life and to collaborate with many talented dancers, filmmakers, actors , composers and cinematographers in New York.
