Waack Revolt

Waack Revolt Trailer

 

Two years ago curators Nadine Villasin and Heather Keung paired five groups together and invited them to create a new dance, film and/or live multimedia work that incorporates dance. Collaboration was a central component to the project, as the purpose was to build stronger ties across artistic disciplines. The experience gave participants a rare opportunity to work together outside of their usual roles and to learn about each other’s processes and art forms. These relationships developed into an expanded dialogue about how both media and performing art forms represent culture, histories and identity. As a result, five new works are being presented that highlight how film and dance have the power to influence social change, build community and affect artistic and cultural discourse. This trailer – Waack Revolt – is one of the five new works and features dancer/choreographers Diana Reyes (Fly Ladi Di) and Emily Law (Em Fatale) witfilmmaker Sonia Hong. The project is called Sprung and premieres November 13 as part of the Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival. To learn more, visit reelasion.com
