Space exploration, tea drinking and the urban landscape are among the diverse topics explored by the winners of the Big Dance Shorts India programme, a series of 4-minute short films.
The three-minute dance films celebrate the relationship between dance and film and between the UK and India. They are commissioned for Channel 4’s Random Acts strand as part of the UK/India 2017 season.
The 4 films are:
EK CHOTI SI ASHA - A SMALL DREAM
BUT WHERE ARE YOUR FROM
The screening of the Big Dance Shorts will be followed by a screening of Wayne McGregor's dance production ATOMOS, at each of the locations as mentioned in the schedule below.
In Atomos, bodies, movement, film, sound and light are atomised into miniature shards of intense sensation. Taking creative points of departure from atomised film, music and biometric data, McGregor’s choreography is woven into an intense 70-minute film, performed by the incredible dancers of Company Wayne McGregor in his distinctive style - sculptural, rigorous, jarring and hauntingly beautiful.
Atomos features a soaring score by A Winged Victory For The Sullen, incredible lighting by Lucy Carter, original footage by Ravi Deepres, and costumes by wearable technology specialists Studio XO. Costumes in 3D film by Moritz Junge originally designed for the production UnDance.
