Great news ... for those who missed the dance

One of the dancers in Invisible (the Dance) - choreographed by Sonja Dumas
Those of you who never got to see Invisible (the Dance) which was inspired by Invisible (the mini documentary), will get the opportunity to do so this Saturday 20 September at Movie Towne, when Invisible (the mini doc) makes its first appearance.

I have seen the dance performed twice and was moved both times. As such, I thought it would be fantastic to have it performed along with the film at the festival, for maximum emotive impact.

When I approached Sonja with the idea, she and the dancers agreed. Even though the space in the cinema is not optimal (not designed for dance and not spacious enough for full movement), it is worth adapting to the spacial limitations and giving it a try. Thanks also to the FF organisers for agreeing to let us do it.

Invisible will be screened at 8 p.m. on the dot. The dance (4 mins long) will happen just before. They are running a tight schedule, so if you do not want to miss it, please make sure to be seated by 7:30/7:45 p.m.

There will be a short Q & A session with the film maker (me) after.

Hope you can make it.
