Dance Umbrella: Sunday Shorts 2 (12A*) + Q&A with Freddie Opoku-Addaie

Birds Eye Vu

Driven by the power of the body in motion this mixed bill reveals artists inspired to create worlds beyond the everyday, curated by Freddie Opoku-Addaie

This second Sunday of choreographic cinema includes an eclectic programme of shorts with a common interest in the communicative potential of the body, seeking to shift the viewer’s centre. The films are created by local and global artists with a unique perspective in what moves us.

Curated by Dance Umbrella Guest Programmer Freddie Opoku-Addaie under the scope of his Out of the System project. After the screening we are delighted that Freddie will host a Q&A with guest filmmakers: Lanre Malaolu, Silvia Fratelli and Hetain Patel.
