“Sit Still” for Films.Dance

April 1, 2021

Looking for a lesson on self-expression? Seven-year-old Adeline Kerry Cruz serves it up straight with her gripping performance in this film, titled “Sit Still.” Choreographed by krumper Russell “Gutta” Ferguson (Season 6 winner of “So You Think You Can Dance”) and directed by Vincent René-Lortie, the work captures the frustration, loneliness and vulnerability that just about all of us have felt over the past year.

“Sit Still” was produced as part of Jacob Jonas The Company’s Films.Dance festival, which is premiering 15 dance films from artists across the world—releasing a new one each Monday through May 3.
