Dance Film: THE BURNING BUILDING, 11min., UK, Dance

“We live in a perpetually burning building, and what we must save from it, all the time, is love.”
Said Tennessee Williams to James Grissom in an interview for his book Follies of God.

A young couple (Sofia Linares and Shuailun Wu) is trapped in a void negotiating a never ending cicle of life without a feeling of time but with an impending sense that their fate is near if not already amongst them. Have they been in this burning building for seconds, minutes or years?

THE BURNING BUILDING was commissioned by Carlos Acosta for Birmingham Royal Ballet, created and conceived by Javier De Frutos and

Directed by Dan Lowenstein.
