SLOW is releasing a film – MOVEMENT – and this documentary, in collaboration with Ballet on Kloof, is coming to the Labia Theatre in Cape Town on the 3rd of November 2022.
MOVEMENT, a Kloof Street Community Movie
This ballet community movie, made in partnership with Ballet on Kloof asks the question: what does movement mean to you?
We’ve interviewed ballet students, professional dancers, and industry experts. The documentary features familiar faces such as actor Ryan de Villiers, known for his role in the feature film Moffie and winner of the Fleur du Cap award for his performance as Miss Trunchbill in Matilda, the musical. There’s also professional ballet dancer, Kyle Andrew Grant, the youngest to choreograph and perform an original piece during the Baxter Dance Festival, and actress/acting coach Tamryn Speirs who starred in Girl From Nowhere.
Set against the backdrop of Kloof Street, this eye-opening and honest documentary acts as a voice for individuals to share their personal relationship with MOVEMENT. From the layers of hard childhood to spinal surgery. The documentary taps into self-actualisation as it explores the physical and mental benefits of movement. Through the the universal language of natural movement, its commonalities connecting us all and the spirit of community the ultimate realisation unfolds… the body never lies.
Ballet on Kloof founder and documentary producer Seugnet Esterhuyse says, “Movement is an energy exchange, it is part of life – a necessity – and it brings life, healing, and love to each other and yourself. After all, like Joseph Pilates said, you are only as young as your spine.”
