Wonderland selected for the NOVEMBER 2022 FilmFest by Rogue Dancer

I am thrilled that Wonderland has been selected for the NOVEMBER 2022 FilmFest by Rogue Dancer: A film festival that offers a monthly curated on-line screening exclusively for DANCE films. Each month Dance films are elegantly sorted into unexpected themes. Wonderland will be screened in the ‘Always a DANCER’ edition.

You can view the event from NOV 18 – DEC 4, 2022


I created Wonderland at the end of the first lockdown 2020. This film is the result of my research investigating connections between improvisation, play and kindness, in collaboration with EncoreEast. The dance is completely improvised within set scenes and choregraphed within edit. Restrictions on dancing inside meant we literally went outside to ‘play’.

The long period spent in lockdown created an exaggerated sense of freedom, which pulsed through the workshops weaving a kind of magic. This momentarily created a world where colour, texture, smell, sound and emotions all became intensified by the experience of dancing together outside.

When we came together after seven months of separation and isolation, we instantly recognised ourselves in each other. We came to play, to share but mostly to enjoy!

What could have been a situation of compromise became a story of adventure and new discoveries.

Enjoy the wonderful film festival showcasing sixteen international films produced by older dancers.
