Together with the British Council, Festival Tanecnich Filmu and composer Danny Odom we bring you Moving Prague. This short film observes the meeting of 58 dancers and the capital of the Czech Republic.
Captured over 3 days, Moving Prague propels art from completely different sources, then packs it back together again. The premise was to un-choreograph, steer nothing and let each dancer become a gateway for what emotions exist in that place, in that time.
Filmed with no live backing track and no pre-meditated choreography the emergence of each new act is simply an explosion of silence. The film serves not only as a means to express time and place, but to express freedom as well.
The final edit, torn apart and put back together again several times is a result of the transatlantic marriage between Danny Odom (electriccomposer.com) and Wind & Foster Director, Editor Jevan Chowdhury (windandfoster.com).
The whole basis of Moving Cities films is an observation of cities as they are today, with a magical realist touch.
