Currently in the post-production phase, Dance, Dance, Evolution is a short documentary film exploring transgender people’s relationship to dance. Specifically, the film looks at how shifting ones gender might cause shifts in how one dances, whether or not one feels comfortable dancing, and how dance may highlight an individual’s internal experience of gendered embodiment. Dance, Dance, Evolution will feature a wide array of transgender people, including those whose gender evolution has resulted in moving from loving to dance to feeling like they can’t dance; never dancing to sometimes dancing; loving to dance with others to only dancing alone; never dancing with others to always dancing out at clubs. The film is about exploring people’s relationship to dance, rather than dance itself.
The film will be released in spring of 2019.
