Don't you wanna Dance
Say you wanna Dance (2021)
Don't you wanna Dance Say you wanna Dance (2021) reflects on the feelings and sensations that arises when being trapped, frozen and unable to move or act, a feeling made familiar to many due to numerous lockdowns and restrictions. Movements expressed in aliveness, but what if danger cannot be escaped from fleeing, sadness cannot be released with a wail or a scream, joyousness cannot be celebrated with a dance of excitement?
DYWD is created as a PANIC! Bursary Project (The Tetley).
