MOVEMENT NEVER LIES Short Film, Audience FEEDBACK from Experimental Festival March 2019

Directed by Angèle Methangkool-Robert

To draw a beautiful letter, the calligrapher must have a perfect hand gestural. More generally, gestural that we can see in any hand writing is telling something from the one who wrote it.
Dancers are telling things with body, gestural, and movements. The way someone is moving are telling a lot about him.

Hi, I am a french young artist of 22 years old.

I am practicing dance and drawing since I was a child.

I began to study applied arts in high school.
Then I moved to Paris to learn Print Graphic Design.

After my degree, I decided to allow more importance for dance in my life.

I am now student in a professional dance school in Montpellier (France), learning how to become a contemporary dance teacher.

Director Statement

With my short movie “Movement Never Lies”, I wanted to explore how to combine dance and graphic design – and show that it is possible.

A dance floor as a giant canvas and my own body as a paintbrush. With this project, I wanted to explore transdisciplinarity in art, by making a parallel between dance and calligraphy. In both domains, the movement is the most important.

To draw a beautiful letter, the calligrapher must have a perfect hand gestural. More generally, gestural that we can see in any hand writing is telling something from the one who wrote it.
Dancers are telling things with body, gestural, and movements. The way someone is moving are telling a lot about him.

To support this reflexion, I have decided to use a citation of the choreographor Martha Graham : “Movement Never Lies”.
