makes › 29 Friends  

29 Friends celebrates the idiosyncrasies of dancers and non-dancers alike, investigating what we do when we groove to our favorite tunes. Megan invited people from the street to dance to their favorite songs and created a piece for professional dancers based on the movements from the filmed ‘source material.’ The edited video is integrated into the choreography, revealing the process of the piece´s making and the choreographic inventiveness of every individual.
