LIFE IN MOVEMENT
In 2007 the Sydney Dance Company appointed 29-year-old choreographer Tanja Liedtke as their first new artistic director in 30 years. However before she could take up the position, she was struck and killed by a truck in the middle of the night. Admired internationally as a dancer and celebrated for her fresh choreographic voice, she was known as a dedicated artist, intelligent, dorky, funny and generous.
18 months after her death her collaborators embark on a world tour of her work, and in the process they must deal with their grief and explore the reasons for her death. Interspersed with intimate footage of her artistic process and previously unseen interviews, Life in Movement is a film about moving creatively through life and loss. Filmmakers Bryan Mason and Sophie Hyde give us a powerfully rendered take on art and artists, creativity and our own mortality.
This film is recommended for people aged 18 years and older due to some coarse language.
Running Time: 79 minutes
Director: Bryan Mason
Featuring: Tanja Liedtke
"A poignant yet invigorating story of art and loss. Life In Movement is a film about a powerful individual but it's also about the strength of a creative partnership and the complex dynamics of people working together. " - Phillipa Hawker, Sydney Morning Herald
