Stopgap Dance Company are working with Waltham Borough of Culture to deliver a trio of films to local residents.
Shot on location in Walthamstow, choreographer Shyne Phiri and film maker Floyd Konde have responded to themes of human interdependence, strength, and vulnerability, creating short dance film ‘Outside In’. Sensitive movement and the juxtaposition of contrasting locations make this compelling viewing. Shyne was supported in his creative process with choreographic support from Stopgap Dance Company.
DashDotDance’s work at The Limes Community and Children’s Centre has been encapsulated in a short documentary by Floyd Konde. The film captures IRIS trained practitioner Vicki Busfield delivering workshops to the young people attending The Limes' Teen Scheme holiday programme and staff’s responses to this dance activity.
Over three days participants experimented with direct and indirect connections between dancers and shapes in body and space, utilising the different parts of the community centre to generate a series of structured improvisations.
Alongside these community films Stopgap Dance Company will also be showing Artificial Things, a film adaptation of their stage work of the same name.
Due to unforeseen circumstances the screenings will close at 1pm on Saturday 25 May
