About the Production:
As a longtime New Yorker and dance-goer, I've long been drawn to the intimacy and immediacy of the creation process in the rehearsal studio.
With FIVE DANCES, I was fortunate to enlist the incredibly creative talent of Jonah Bokaer. Our five dancers are New York City’s best. Creating a film around them and their talents was the most exciting work I’ve ever done as a director. FIVE DANCES is a unique film in all the best ways – original in its conception, visually exciting, and, so emotionally honest in its performances that it will draw in even non-dance audiences.
