Short Film: FLOOR FALLS, 3min., UK, Dance

 

32fc3e565d posterA women stands, takes a breath, and moves. Arching back extending further than seems possible, she steps forward, rising up onto the tip of her toe and over the threshold. We see blackness then she appears. Rotating and twisting, the camera and her dance around each other. She suspends, or has the floor fallen?
We focus in on her as she walks in air, gravity free, not knowing where we are, what is up and what is down. Spinning through the space, gradually we see her disappearing, focus fading and she is gone.

Floor Falls is a collaboration between award winning film makers Lewis Gourlay and Abby Warrilow of Cagoule and aerial dance choreographer Jennifer Paterson of All or Nothing Aerial Dance Theatre, featuring dancer Freya Jeffs.
This short dance for screen brings together aerial harness techniques with dance for camera.

Short Film: BONDIARIES, 3min., Germany, Dance

 

Bd19c47d9a posterLuxembourgish dancer & photographer Jill Bettendorff and french dancer Wilfried Ebongue fell in love in the german capital 5 years ago. Coming from different social, cultural & artistic backgrounds, it has been their challenge ever since to find a common & new ground, whether it was on a private or professional level. They never let their differences define them so they´ve been striving to find their own boundaries, limitation, comfort & discomfort zones, to who they are as a couple, personally & artistically.

They teamed up with german videographer Torben Loth to create a video where they explore different constellations that can happen within a relationship, based on the three words: dependence, independence & interdependence.
The video shows a conceptual performance that moves through those different stages.

Starting with dependence, a space where one is guided by the other regardless of one person’s needs. Moving through independence where we move on our own without needing the support of the other to finally arrive in a space of interdependence where we give ourselves the freedom to be ourselves & equally support each other.
