Dancing On My Own | Premiere screening

Dancing On My Own | Premiere screening


Dancing On My Own is a short film that celebrates the simplicity and complexity of dancing.Why is dancing to a song that we love so joyful? What activates our sensory creativity and what are our individual motives for dancing?Sara Lindström has invited people of different ages and experiences to dance to their favourite music track in front of the camera. She has interviewed each dancer about why they've chosen their music and how it moves them, emotionally and physically.When they dance, do they dance the song or their selves? Can dancing be an act of self-consciousness and bodily becoming and is there such a thing as our own dance?Or is dancing a collective becoming and result of culture and other influences? Is it a combination of both?Dancing On My Own evokes a variety of sensations for both viewers and dancers, from humour and joy to nostalgia, sadness and absurdity.This screening takes place during Juncture's closing celebration.Commissioned by Juncture.
