Award-winning film-maker Gregor Nicholas and celebrated dancer and choreographer Douglas Wright collaborate in a film which evokes Brassai's Paris, Orson Welles' Vienna and W.C. Handy's New Orleans. The film plays with both the conventions of popular dance and of film noir.
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.

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