Hell You Talmbout
(Denzel Boyd, Tyler Rabinowitz, Joseph Webb)
In the wake of the killings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, the directors came across a Facebook Live video of the students of Northwest Tap dancing in the streets in protest. This was the result.
(Matteo Marziano Graziano) A short movie about secrecy, vulnerability and roses. Starring Venus, Eros, and Harpocrates, the god of silence.
In the Wild
excerpt (Rita Nga-shu HUI)
We can’t help but dance. We have to tread on the edge. Be wild. Move our bodies.
Push against the absurdity of everyday.
(Connie Chavez) A choreofilm against street harassment that was created as a call to action for victims, predominantly women, to stand against their harassers.
(Marta Renzi) A moody space of dark and light where 3 young men explore their social, physical and animal natures.
Intrinsic Moral Evil
(Harm Weistra) is a tale of identity and coming of age that invites the audience to reflect and form its own interpretation, as the three dancers play with viewers’ expectations and perceptions.
House of Ninja Highbridge Park
(Rami Shafi) Pedestrian Wanderlust is a movement of improvised dance in public spaces. For this film we collaborated with the iconic international vogue troupe House of Ninja and shot on a handheld iphone7.
Claudette V: Papa
