Darja Reznikova is also concerned with childlike curiosity and the pleasure of discovery in “Cotton Candy,” which doesn’t taste as sweet as it sounds. A girl is practicing the piano to the sound of waltzes and repeatedly shouts the word “sérieux! (serious), another rides a unicycle, and a third breaks out in baby cries. She could be Alice, who is pushed out of Wonderland. She can’t even stomp her way out of the dance formation, which is struck by the stroboscopic light.
