A new film from Director and Photographer Rick Guest and double BAFTA-winning Designer and Creative Director Kate Dawkins, featuring former Studio Wayne McGregor dancer James Pett and the music of Grammy-nominated artist Mura Masa.
Exploring the conflicting emotions of desire and fear, the subconscious need to be heard, and the quest for self-expression, this film poignantly mirrors this turbulent time of enforced isolation and its impact on the creative mind and spirit, through the medium of dance and cutting edge motion graphic design.
Suicide is the single biggest killer of men aged under 45 in the UK. In 2015, 75% of all UK suicides were male. In the run-up to World Mental Health Day on the 10th of October 2020, Invisible Threads Part 1 is to form part of a One Dance UK’s Healthier Dance Programme campaign exploring and artistically interpreting the themes and issues male dancers face. The campaign will specifically deal with the need for education and social support provision for dancers, and continue discussions about suicide and self-harm prevention in dance begun as a part of last year’s World Mental Health Day: https://www.onedanceuk.org/world-mental-health-day-2019/
