Dance Umbrella: Sunday Shorts 1 (12A*) + Q&A with Oona Doherty

A college

A mixed bill of short films specially curated by Northern Irish choreographer Oona Doherty.

Marking the first of three Sundays featuring choreographically-inspired films, this programme is brought together by Dance Umbrella Featured Artist 2019 Oona Doherty

Combining her own works with long-time collaborator director Luca Truffarelli, alongside other artists driven by the power of dance and film, the programme reveals in Oona’s own words “masculinity in all its beauty and ugliness, the viral youth, grey skies and screaming hearts”.

We're pleased to have Oona Doherty join us for an informal Q&A after the screening.
