Dancing in the Now

PI-DanceThis documentary film is about the art and profession of contemporary dance. Exploring not only what it means to be a dancer, but what it means to be human, and how these are intrinsically and intimately woven. — With footage collected across Australia and Europe and interviews withStephanie Lake, Antony Hamilton, Paea Leach, James Vu Ahn Pham, Lauren Langlois, Tara Jade Soh and Sarah Jayne Howard, it has been beautiful journey indeed.

“The more I observe and explore the phenomena that is dance the more I truly see and believe that what dance provides is a visual language for an internal world…the world of human emotion that cannot be seen, but always be felt. And with in this language I have yet to find a dance form in which this is more evident than the globally practiced yet loosely defined genre of contemporary dance.These dancers spend their life in vigorous training, challenging and expanding their physical, mental and emotional limitations purely to find ways to better express and communicate the stories, messages and experiences that reflect what it is to be human…using nothing more than their very own human body. It never ceases to strike awe in my spirit when I watch these humans at work.” Ubuntu Samaya
