IF IT WERE LOVE
A stirring hybrid of contemporary dance performance and intimate character study that examines the on-and-off-stage lives of 15 young dancers
A singular and stirring hybrid of contemporary dance performance and intimate character study, this Teddy Award-winning docu-essay from Patric Chiha reveals the human layers beneath Gisèle Vienne’s stunning, kinetic choreography. Chiha examines both the on- and-off-stage lives of 15 young dancers as gender, sexuality, and movement collide, culminating in a fascinating rumination on queer identity in the modern era and a tactile exploration of the many modes of human connection.
