Film Screenings. Modul-dance festival. Hellerau Dresden

Film Screenings · "One Man Walking" by Margaret Williams

Dancefilm program curated by Núria Font/NU2s included as an activity within the 3rd modul-dance festival at Hellerau Dresden. Films projected:

  • One Man Walking. Margaret Willians. UK (2011). 17′

One Man Walking explores some of the intensity and challenges of life in the metropolis combining krump –an expressive and highly energetic dance movement– with the uplifting, soaring excitement of free-running.
Director: Margaret Williams / Choreographer and performer: Kenrick “H2O” Sandy / Script: Jonzi D / Photography director: George Richmond / Music: Michael “Mikey J” Asante / Editor: Rachel Tunnard / Productor: Anne Beresford.

  • Fisticuffs. Miranda Penell. UK (2004). 11′

A bloke walks into a pub… Six actors punch, kick and wrestle their way through the Wild West of an East London drinking establishment.   The ritual of the Western bar-brawl is re-located to a London working men’s’ club.   The violence appears to have no consequences, the actors’ bodies being as rubbery and invulnerable as those in the TV Westerns that inspired the film.
Director: Miranda Penell / Coreography: Miranda Penell & the Ensemble

  • Come see the World. Meritxell Aumedes. Sweden (2012). 4’46″

Come see the world shows the plurality of Goteborgsoperans Danskompani, consisting of  dancers with sixteen different nationalities. The piece works as a mirror reflecting the city of Gotemburg and the globalized world in which we live. With music by Betancor, especially composed for the film, it takes the movement to the city, and frames it in original cityscapes. A global village come together with one goal: dance destination.
