Featuring a series of eleven 1 minute solo dance portraits, created and performed by the WE ARE HERE COMPANY in collaboration with digital artist, Feras Shaheen, and writer, Felicity Castagna, be inspired by the dance moves of 'ALL THAT I AM RIGHT NOW', which presents a series of solo intimate moving portraits that celebrate private moments of joy, experienced on the inside of our dancing lives.
"Dancing in the light, in the dark, glances, nods to our inner wild and tame, in and out of frame, sharp edits, and text that depicts glimpses of sound bites and embodies All That I Am Right Now. It celebrates where we are, and how we are, and in that moment who we are, and why WE ARE HERE. “
