DESTINO: A Contemporary Dance Story
UK | 2010 | 56’ | Docu
DESTINO: A Contemporary Dance Story celebrates the potency of the arts to bring people together across generations and ethnic divides; a power to challenge fate, to change lives. Filmed on location in London and Addis Ababa, the film traces the build-up to the performances in both cities of DESTINO, an unforgettable collaboration between Dance United and Sadler’s Wells in March 2009, and features new works by Russell Maliphant and Hofesh Shechter. Staged as a tribute to their extraordinary journey from the streets of Addis Ababa to that iconic stage, DESTINO starred Junaid Jemal Sendi and Addisu Demissie in a production that was hailed by the press as perhaps the most ambitious community dance project ever staged.
