Devised for film by choreographer, Lisa Densem and director Neil Pardington, Losing Sleep is a six minute dance film set in a night-time of wakefulness, memory and dream.
Three distinct choreographies explore a dream-like world of shifting relationships between friends and lovers.
A group of friends are caught in a frantic cycle of betrayed trust, deception and shifting allegiances, creating an endless pattern of action and reaction in a world without respite or resolve.
Three girlfriends make and break their friendships – continually casting out one of their company in a hopeless cycle of affirmation and dismay.
In a love duet inspired by Paul Mazursky’s 1969 comedy Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice, bedroom politics are played out in a hilarious, but touching dance of requited passion.
Losing Sleep seamlessly translates Lisa Densem’s dynamic, yet poignant choreography into work aptly described as ‘cinematic dance, or should I say dancing cinema…a perfect melding of film and movement.’
