In this selection of six short narrative films, the universal language of dance colors a diverse array of scenes, atmospheres, and characters—each in under 15 minutes. Journey from a whimsical film set to a futuristic digital dystopia and delve deeply into contemporary issues of joy, loss, perseverance, and the abiding strength of the human spirit. With each dance move, each line of dialogue, and each meticulously framed shot, the Narrative Shorts program encapsulates the power of collaboration between dance artists, actors, choreographers, and filmmakers.
