THE SPILL FESTIVAL OF PERFORMANCE IS AN INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF LIVE ART, ACTIVISM AND PERFORMANCE PRESENTING THE WORK OF EXCEPTIONAL ARTISTS FROM AROUND THE GLOBE.
FIGURE IS AN EXPERIMENTAL DANCE FILM ABOUT BOYS GROWING UP WITHOUT FATHERS. IT EXPLORES HOW EARLY DETACHMENT FROM A FATHER FIGURE AFFECTS EMOTIONAL GROWTH AND ENGAGEMENT WITH THE WORLD.
Through a dynamic fusion of physical theatre and hip‑hop dance, the film follows two young men as they search for answers both outside and inside of themselves.
