Another month at Whirlygig, this time it was all about Performance, which meant films as diverse as contemporary dance, musicals, and visual poems, as well as documentary style pieces focusing on performers in theatre and music.

As usual, the link is above to read the full article which I wrote for Whirlygig on their site.

The films this month were all quite different in scope and tone, but they all seemed to share a desire for the beautiful, striving for meaning, and a sense of the theatrical and often the decadent.

It was a little sad this time around, because this was the last Showcase of the season from Whirlygig, so I’ll miss turning up at the Hackney Picturehouse and eating a huge hot dog and making pages and pages of notes.
