Dance Performance | Dance on Film: One & One Other (online thru Apr 24)


In a bizarre play between reality and absurdist fantasy, One & One Other is a dance film offering a window into the secret world that exists on the fringes of our late-night consciousness. At the heart of the film is the mind’s ability to transport us away from the mundane, habitual rhythm of life into the incongruous realm of our imagination; a place that oscillates between the fantastic and the harrowing. One & One Other is Shawn Fitzgerald Ahern and Emilie Leriche’s fifth collaboration together, driven by a shared ambition to push the boundaries of film and dance and uncover how the two media might meet, intersect, and disrupt each other.
