MOVEment is a unique series of short films uniting fashion, dance and cinema in a radical new way. AnOther Magazine has invited seven of the biggest names in fashion to create bespoke costumes for seven specially choreographed performances, interpreted for the screen by seven pioneering directors.
MOVEment will premiere at Sadler’s Wells’ Lilian Baylis Studio on Saturday the 18 April, followed by a public online release via anothermag.com on the 20 April.
AnOther Magazine founder Jefferson Hack comments,
“This project has been a labour of love for a number of talented craftsmen, creating completely bespoke collaborations that appreciate dance and fashion from a new perspective.”
A special UK launch event to celebrate the release of the films will take place on Saturday 18th April at Sadler’s Wells’ Lilian Baylis Studio, where the films will be exclusively screened, preceded by a live Q&A with milliner Stephen Jones. The premiere will be followed by a live performance of Russell Maliphant’s seminal solo TWO, performed by Russell Maliphant Company Dancer, Carys Staton, with music by Andy Cowton and lighting by Michael Hulls.
Tickets and full event details can be found at www.sadlerswells.com. Tickets are priced at £17 and go on sale from Tuesday 7th April at 2pm via www.sadlerswells.com. All proceeds to go to charity.
