Marlene Millar has been creating dance-media projects for over 20 years and she has won numerous awards. Move is also a chapter in the Migration Dance Film Project, a series of films reflecting on the universal theme and experience of migration directed by Marlene with choreography by Sandy Silva.
Nine dancers and singers travel across along parched roads and moonlit fields to find refuge in an abandoned place of worship. Through a complex series of Turkish usul patterns designed to ignite emotional states of journey and light, the group finds connection and solace in the sheltered space.
