PERPETUAL MOTION – a short dance film by Micha Smith, free streaming online soon!

Inside a bar, young souls are hidding their secrets... Smith's story is Inspired by "Cleared for Love" .

Perpetual Motion is a short, dance-art film that explores relationships, sexuality, love and loneliness. The film is a single, fluid shot that moves around a crowded bar, landing on different couples and individuals whose inner worlds are suddenly manifested through dance. While a bar is a place of conversation, those conversations are often just the outer layer of a rich emotional world that can include love, anger, passion, and loneliness. It is the subtext behind an ordinary evening in a bar that becomes the multiple stories of Perpetual Motion.

Director Micah Smith approached choreographer Tamir Ginz after he had visited Kamea Dance Company’s performance and admired Ginz’s “cleared for Love”. He offered to cooperate in the making of this film. The result received great reviews and was screened at some of the most valued dance festivals worldwide including The San Francisco International Dance film Festival.

In a time when art can be enjoyed only at home, we are honored to share this beautiful experience with you, streaming free online for the very first time.
