The film takes a unique look at rage, and how through our acknowledgement of it we can better understand ourselves and harness it creatively.
Following the debut of the film, audiences are invited to join creator Rick Guest in conversation with Erin Sanchez, One Dance UK's Manager of Health, Wellbeing and Performance, for an exclusive look behind the lens at the creative process and delve into the meaning behind the film.
Rick Guest said:
"I'm so grateful to the amazing team at One Dance UK for both raising awareness for this incredibly important issue within the creative arts and for supporting the many ways in which we can express what we're going through, and hopefully, through that work, help others acknowledge their situation and understand that they are not alone and that there is a way through."
Erin Sanchez, Manager of Health, Wellbeing, and Performance at One Dance UK adds:
"Awareness, understanding and management of our emotional responses to uncertainty, stress, and threat are important to support health and wellbeing and cope with events in life. The emotion of anger can be stigmatised and misunderstood.
''A Dream of Dark & Troubling Things' provides a lens on anger through art.
"In conversation with the artists, we will discuss this emotion and experiences of it in times of challenge and consider how to accept and express this emotion healthfully.'
'A Dream of Dark & Troubling Things' will premiere on One Dance UK's Facebook page at 2pm on Friday 5th March 2021. After the film viewing, join the makers and discuss the creative process and the meaning behind the visuals in an exclusive live Q&A on at 3pm on Zoom. Registration is encouraged CLICK HERE.
