Beyond My Steps + Movement Workshop Event
Kamy Lara | Angola 2019 | 1h12m | Portuguese with English subtitles | 12
Kamy Lara’s visceral documentary explores the process behind the creation of the piece “(Des) Construção” by choreographer Mónica Anapaz for the 2017 season of the Contemporary Dance Company of Angola. The film follows five dancers as they interrogate the concepts of tradition, culture, memory and identity, questioning the transformation and deconstruction of these themes in their own lives. Most of them - from other provinces of the country - bring memories and traditions with them when they move to the bustling, erratic and frantic reality of the capital.
The film will be followed by a free online movement workshop with choreographer and cultural producer Sara dos Santos on Wednesday 4 November at 7:30pm. The workshop will take place via Zoom. To register click here.
