Debuting at The Place’s Resolution festival for new choreography last year, Elettra Giunta’s To Hold My Love is a sensual work about vulnerabilities and personal journeys.
Just over a year on, the stage performance of To Hold My Love has been on its own journey and has now been developed into a short dance film. This film premieres at Phoenix Cinema, London on 14 October, with alternative viewings on 8th October if you can’t make the premiere.
A piece about connection, To Hold My Love is choreographed by Elettra Giunta and co-directed by Adam Othman.
Elettra is a dance artist and choreographer from Sicily, currently based in London. Her choreography has been showcased in venues such as Whitechapel Gallery, The Place and the Drawing Room. Adam Othman is a director and editor, born in Malaysia and raised in the UK. With work spanning the realms of fashion, music and visual arts, Adam has amassed tens of millions of views online on works such as Paris Paloma’s music video ”Labour” and fashion campaign ad for Vogue and Acne featured artist James Walsh.
Produced by Froggy Creative Studio in association with Grey Moth the film has a runtime of 22 minutes, followed by a Q&A with film co-directors, Director of Photography Will Hazell, and the five dancers (Aleksandra Walentynowicz, Louisa Fernando, Shanley Jorge-Elde, Ioanna Georgopolou, and Jacquelyn Tepper).
