ALIVE and KICKING
Susan Glitzer, USA 2016, 84 min.
For many, swing dance is an addiction and a joyful practice. This documentary is an insider’s look into the culture of the current swing dance world and an examination of the social and personal issues that affect the lives of the film’s subjects. What is remarkable is that no matter how tough things get, these men and women find their bliss doing what they love. On the dance floor they virtually explode with energy - leaping, twisting, revolving. There’s no way that you’ll be able to keep still and not feel the joy.
Graham Clayton-Chance, UK, 2015, 6 min.
The verbal and physical slapstick of this dance monologue suggests dark truths behind love, sex, and relationships. Taken from the archive of the late Nigel Charnock, this is the first in a series of new films that honor his classic performances.
