“The David Dance” follows “Danger Dave” (Don Scime), the host of a radio show “Gay Talk” in Buffalo, New York. On air, he’s funny, poised, and a familiar presence in his listeners’ lives, but off-air, David is shy and wracked with self-doubt. He’s close with his sister Kate (Antoinette LaVecchia), a thrice divorced banker who likes classical music and cats, and wants to adopt an orphan from Brazil. When Kate asks David to be the child’s father figure, he grapples with his own personhood, self-acceptance, and his own inadequacy. This sweet, intimate human drama intertwines the past and the present to delve into the psychologies of those who wish to live and love. Watch the exclusive trailer for “The David Dance” above.
“The David Dance” is directed by Aprill Winney, who has primarily worked as a script supervisor for over twenty years on shows like “Arrested Development,” “Family Tree,” and “The Fosters,” for which she also directed two episodes. She also directed the film “Counting Backwards,” about a man dying of cancer who learns to embrace life in his last days. “The David Dance” is based on Don Scime’s play of the same name.
“The David Dance” will open in North American theaters this fall. See a poster for the film below.
