This cinematographic voyage is a poetic and playful look at the beauty of ordinary movement and the great human choreography. Renowned French choreographer Thierry Thieû Niang went on tour in 2017, offering intergenerational workshops for non-dancers. Directed by Béatriz Mediavilla, this film in ten chapters draws us into the rich, artistic and intimate worlds of dance and movement. A gentle foray into time, space and the body.

Béatriz Mediavilla

Multidisciplinary artist, Béatriz Mediavilla was born in 1972, in Rouyn-Noranda, where she still lives today. Holder of a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in film studies, she teaches cinema at the Abitibi-Témiscamingue College. In parallel to her teaching, Ms Mediavilla has accomplished other works, including the multidisciplinary collective work Ce qu’il en reste : dialogue artistique sur la mort (2009). She published Des Espagnols à Palmarolle found in Nouvelles Explorations (2010) and Contes, légendes et récits de l’Abitibi-Témiscamingue (2011), and she also published Entre les heures in Rouyn-Noranda Littéraire (2013). Danse avec elles, her first full-length documentary, was given great praise, and was presented in many festivals such as Montréal, Quebec City, Toronto and Vancouver, but also in Havana and New York City. According to Movement, a story in ten chapters also had a great festival life in Canada, Scotland, France, Mexico and United States where it won the Best dance documentary at the Fine Art Film Festival in California. More recently, she incorporated remote communications tools into her latest short film Still Feel You With Me, filmed with participants from England, the United States and Canada simultaneously.
