Cinema On Demand: If It Were Love (15*) + exclusive pre-recorded ScreenTalk with director Patric Chiha

Fringe! Queer Film & Arts Fest

A group of dancers on a stage in a still from If It Were Love

When creating art one must give a little of themselves in order to achieve authenticity, but in the making of choreographer Gisèle Vienne’s ‘Crowd’ fifteen dancers give more than their bodies.

Through rehearsals they explore, move and tap deep into their memories, giving more than their sweaty toned flesh to the dance. The company brings life to this sexually charged exploration of the 90’s rave culture. 
 
But outside the walls of the studio, this blurring of reality and fiction goes a step further. In staged conversations the dancers reveal their crushes and desires, building a web of complex emotions that add new dimensions to the dance. We are mesmerised by how their bodies slowly move, passions simmering between each repetitive movement, the cinema itself becoming the rave. 
 
Patric Chiha’s award winning documentary is an enthralling neon-lit ride of performance and expressions of queer sexuality.
