Call-out for dance-theatre short films

These are unprecedented times, and there is brilliance and darkness. Out beyond the facts, the hearsay, the figures and the rules, lies our humanity. There’s lightness and shade in all of it, from every angle. How are the days dancing-by with you? Where do you find yourself, what do you see? Has something been stimulated or awoken? Put it in a short dance-film, and share it!

As a way of contributing to the online arts-community and providing support, in times when many artists are in need, the TLF invites Australians residing in Germany to create short dance-theatre films (3-5 min) for exhibition.

Tanja - Life in Movement (2011)


The documentary about Tanja Liedtke, Life in Movement had its world premiere at the Adelaide Film Festival in early March of 2011. The film was produced and directed by the multi award winning team, Sophie Hyde and Bryan Mason of Closer Productions. The film provides an insight to Tanja’s life as an artist, her determination and her love of the language of movement art. The film stands as a testament to the work Tanja created with her close collaborators. As her work tours internationally, her collaborators reveal their memories and process their grief over her sudden death while Tanja continues to inspire through previously unseen interviews and footage of her compelling process.
