WE: a day in the life of many, who become one, through movement.
A short film in development by writer/director Lynne Stopkewich
The context of WE is our conscious and unconscious never-ending desire for “the other”, our real and existential need for human connection. The choreography of movement, camera, and editing would connect the dances we all perform, trained and untrained individuals, in our daily lives, throwing focus on our personal choreographies. The film will reveal and blur the line between dance/gender/narrative reality through the repetition of movements. Viewers will see themselves in our many characters, recognize and examine their own daily choreographies, and perhaps expand their definition of dance, who does it and why.
Featuring choreography and performance by Jennifer McLeish Lewis
