“Invisible Threads Part 1”

October 22, 2020

This short film by director/photographer Rick Guest and designer/creative director Kate Dawkins features former Studio Wayne McGregor dancer James Pett moving to the music of Mura Masa, edited in a way that he almost appears to be partnering with a series of motion graphic designs. Made in collaboration with One Dance UK and the National Institute of Dance Medicine and Science, Guest says it speaks to the unsettling emotions we are all experiencing right now, as well as the resilience of pushing through. The film won the “Best Animation/Experimental” category at the Rethink Dance Film Festival 2020.
