Three short films by Alexandre Iseli & Jazmin Chiodi
Iseli-Chiodi’s work spans from professional stage productions to community creation. These three films outline the artistic scope of their work as choreographers of Iseli-Chiodi dance company and directors of the Tipperary Dance Platform and TDP’ festival programmes.
More to Dance documents the commitment of children as they prepare to perform on stage. The film reveals how deeply a dance project touches children’s heart, helping them feel and embody values of engagement, collaboration, tolerance, inclusivity and courage.
Created in collaboration with Cathy Coughlan, September Days follows several elderly women in the very traditional settings of a primary school. The film witnesses them at play, evoking and reinventing some of the games and feelings of their childhood with a freedom that is the privilege of their age.
Distance Measures (Sketches) is an instant creation made at the heart of the COVID-19 lockdown. The films expresses some artistic obsessions of the company: visuals at the service of deeply embodied experiences, the dialectics between belonging and isolation, the visible and the invisible, and a slightly desperate sense of humour.
