Artificial Things

Stopgap Dance Company

Artificial Things.

Slowly suffocating in each other’s company, a group of individuals seek escape in a bash of riotous rock-n-roll. However, their wild disorder descends into playground politics and reveals some uncomfortable truths. In this cinematic and evocative production Stopgap Dance Company creates a compact world of riddles that question our notions about unity and co-existence. 

Dance company Stopgap Dance have reimagined their stage production into a film short. 

Shot on location in a derelict suburban shopping mall and featuring an ensemble of disabled and non-disabled dancers, the film explores human interdependence, strength, and vulnerability. 

Directed and edited by: Sophie Fiennes
Produced by: Brook Crowley and Martin Rosenbaum
Choreography: Lucy Bennett
Starring: Amy Butler, Laura Jones, Chris Pavia, David Willdridge and David Toole
