A vivid reminder of the healing power of dance.

to bend and not break is a dance film created by award-winning choreographer and filmmaker Dan Canham in collaboration with students on the MA Interdisciplinary Dance Performance (IDP) course at Northern School of Contemporary Dance.

Filmed at inner city locations in Holbeck and Chapeltown, the film flows between states of grief and joy to celebrate the role of dance as a communal healing force.

"From sorrow and hopelessness to community and congregation."
