On Demand | Nominee
14-17 October 2021
On Demand is one of the four curated programmes of Scottish short dance films selected to be presented at DanceLive 2021 Festival. It features five screen dance works drawn from a juried open call. The selected line-up includes five screen dance works: Happy Together by Sofia Kondylia, Forest Within by Anna Dako, Out of Time by Penny Chivas and Alan Paterson, Sylph by Louise Barrington and In Absentia by Malcolm Sutherland.
“Happy Together” screendance film presents the final rehearsal of a virtual dance ensemble. How can an ensemble choreography be researched, rehearsed, and performed at four different places and, when put on screen, still give the illusion of taking place on the same stage? Created solely remotely between Scotland and Greece, this work explores the urgency and irony of dancing “together and apart” during the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond.
