About

Award-winning filmmaker Gregor Nicholas and celebrated contemprary dancer and choreographer Douglas Wright collaborate in a film which evokes Brassai's Paris, Orson Welles's Vienna and W. C. Handy's New Orleans. The dancers split and merge genders as they play with the conventions of popular dance - even turning them literally upside-down. At the same time, the film plays with the conventions of film noir.

Director Nicholas went on to direct acclaimed short Avondale Dogs and the feature Broken English.
