Destino: A Contemporary Dance Story (2010)

Music/ Dance / 56m / Feature / Documentary


Filmed on location in London and Addis Ababa, DESTINO: A Contemporary Dance Story, chronicles the build-up to the landmark performance of the unforgettable collaboration between Dance United and Sadler’s Wells in March 2009, and its triumphant return to Addis Ababa.
Staged as a tribute to their extraordinary journey from the streets of Addis Ababa to that iconic stage, DESTINO also starred Junaid Jemal Sendi and Addisu Demissie in a production that featured new works by Russell Maliphant and Hofesh Shechter, and which was hailed by the press as perhaps the most ambitious community dance project ever staged.
DESTINO: A Contemporary Dance Story takes the audience behind the scenes and weaves together sequences of preparation, rehearsal and performance, while juxtaposing them with fascinating insights into the nature and power of contemporary dance, and its ability to reach out to audiences of all ages everywhere.
