Event Description

'A beautiful piece of work, moving, inspiring and thought provoking on many levels - about dance, about women, about being in front of cameras…'

An invitation to Witness three exceptional dancers as they collaborate in the making of their own choreographic portraits.

Three women talk candidly about their relationship with dance, performance and what it is to be watched.

The unique performances that result are both elaborate and supremely personal: as idiosyncratic as the women who dance them.

Excellence, intimacy and honesty in performance. 

"The films draw a fine line between what is real and what is performed and ask how it is to be watched or exhibited." Jo Fong

Direction and Choreography Jo Fong 

Filming and Editing Filipe Alcada and Dawn Collins

Dancers Ino Riga,  “Theatre is a rehearsed life, pre-planned, you know your role.”

Eeva-Maria Mutka,  “Is this dancing?”

Annabeth Berkeley,  “You can’t always say the truth, sometimes you have to pretend.”
