Speak Volumes is a short dance film made for camera. It follows on from the live performance created by the 29 dancers of the National Youth Dance Company in collaboration with Guest Artistic Director Alesandra Seutin. In this iteration the choreography by Alesandra Seutin is re-enacted in a disused school building.
Speak Volumes is an open floor for the voices of the younger ones of these times, a space for their existence and truth to be heard, acknowledged and experienced lights on.
