Film Screenings. Dansehallerne Copenhagen
Dancefilm program curated by Núria Font/NU2s projected at Tanzhaus NRW in the context of Carl Dansefestival. Films projected:
- Animalz. Sergio Cruz. Portugal/UK (2006). 4′
Animalz is an exuberant fantasy in which boys emerge from the sea, like the original amphibians, and colonise a forest, marking out their territory in a break-dance celebration of Nature and her feral sons. The film takes the urban B-Boy skills of Brighton and Hove’s B3 Boys into the city’s surrounding natural landscapes, where sixteen 8-14 year-old dancers were encouraged to bring out the animal in themselves in their energetic performances.
Director: Sergio Cruz / Choreographers: JP Omari, Sergio Cruz
- Stronger. Wilkie Branson. UK (2010). 4′
A story about a happy meeting of two travelling companions. Dance becomes action, the adventure of two bodies —two souls who had previously been alone— through a wooded mountain. A choreography for two dancers in an outdoor, natural space, to the vigorous rhythms of hip-hop, breakdance and bboy.
Director: Wilkie Branson / Choreographer: Champloo Dance Company / Performers: Wilkie Branson, Joel Daniel / Music: Phil King.
