7 PORTRAITS OF SOLITUDE – a specially curated online collection of short dance film works. Together, 7 dancers – 7 composers – unite to create 7 worlds and offer you a message of hope, remembering that we are all connected, even when we feel so alone. In these uncertain times we find ourselves in our art, in our humanity, with our emotional life becoming more defined and more realized – as the new truths that we learn become our future history. 

All of the incredible people involved in this project have generously given their time and talent for free, and we all hope that you will enjoy these portraits as much as we did making them.

Importantly these films aim to create awareness to help support our fellow artists during these challenging times. Our stage industries risk losing a generation of talent if they are not offered the support they need. Please check out the links below and make your donation, give as much as you can, and share this message with your friends and family – let’s help to make the difference.
