Challenging DANCE & CINEMA Across Europe

The Covid-19 pandemic is today reinforcing the nationalist retreat that gradually destroys the creative spaces defending Europe as a land of welcome, inclusion and diversity within a logic of solidarity, empowerment and sustainable economic development. For several years now, we have been operating European cooperation projects to come up against fears, precariousness, violence and the growing disparities between Northern and Southern Europe.

.

Together, mAPs 5 co-founders will produce in 2021 four original dance short films and one creative documentary on the common theme of POWER in Europe. Each country/structure has taken up a sub-theme to be explored through a strong citizen dynamic developed on its territory.

Workshop Screendance

The Kinitiras Ω team started in 2014 with the idea that senior citizens should have access to dance and theater through a creative community, where they can activate body and soul and unfold their rich artistic voice. Through weekly meetings, the group members started with gentle physical exercise, inspired by modern dance and physical theater, followed by vocal practice and yoga to learn bodycare through exercise and reflexology. The purpose of this mAPs screendance workshop, hosted by M∅Z @chrysanthibadeka, was to soften their daily lives amidst pandemic, since elderly people live in a multi-faceted precarity. In this way the social benefit of the arts directly affects the daily life of their community.

He works to trick audiences into thinking and acting.He has studied both filmmaking and acting to ready himself for the dance between a camera and a performer that is cinema. His latest dance film Mudlove (2019) is a mudwrestling dance that reveal uniting hearts and coliding bodies. Marrying music and motion with a twist of social commentary has been his main focus and trademark.

Italian Team : ALAIN SAKHAWI

“I really think music and movement – dance, you know – and literature inform my visuals. I think film is also based indance. The relationship between me, the camera and the actor is always a dance.”Christopher Doyle ( Paranoid Park (2007), Hero (2002) and 2046 (2004)…)
“I born in France and grew up in Paris from a French mother and an Egyptian father. I have lived between Paris and Sicily which is the meeting point between my ancestors cultures. This gave me a great rise of inspiration.
Since October 2019 I moved to Rome (Italy) to follow an intensive Cinematographer Course specializing in D.I.T(Digital Imaging Technician).
I come from martial arts, artistic gymnastic, comic books drawing and my first profession for 15 years have been dancing. I worked as a dancer for companies in France, Germany and Italy.
As a filmmaker I worked for several companies for promotional contents. I have been directing my own work together with the « QBR Collective » basing it on combining languages of dance with grammar of cinema.
The work was lead by linking shots with architecture, dance with all kind of intentional movements, editing with rhythm, body with environment, dance and cinema through cinematographic references.”
