Moving Southwark (Jevan Chowdhury. UK.) 5:29 min.
Commissioned by the Arts Council England, Moving Southwark is a magical realist take on one of London’s oldest boroughs, Southwark. Part of the wider Moving Cities remit to investigate culture and people via dance, we take you deeper into London, probing further into what makes up a city. The narrator, Nadine Marshall and composer, Danny Odom form a score underwritten by 24 dancers. Each dancer was asked to respond directly whats on their mind in that given time, in that given moment.
The films of the Moving Cities project have been screened at about 35 festivals around the world.
