Moving Together – short film premiere and meet the team
On Demand (IF 2020)
Film / discussion | Dance, Health & Medicine, Music, Society
Watch the short film that was created as part of the Moving Together project, and join a Q&A and panel discussion where members of the creative team, project participants and researchers working on loneliness will discuss the film, the creative collaborative research process, and the role of the arts in combating loneliness.
Moving Together is an inspirational collaboration between anthropology researcher Dr Bronwyn Tarr and physical theatre company Justice in Motion. The project explores loneliness, the opposite of loneliness, and how shared experiences are important for personal and community health. Participants and artists have engaged in various workshops and performances, culminating in this short dance-film exploring how shared experiences can bring connectivity.
