Film Dance ROUND2 – BECAUSE WE ARE STRANGE CREATURES
The second chapter of “Film Dance”, a short film project by LA-based dance company “JACOB JONAS THE COMPANY”, has been released.
TOKYO’s director Jo Motoyo has been invited to direct one of the pieces titled BECAUSE WE ARE STRANGE CREATURES.
Jo also wrote lyrics for the first time and commented “Asian Hate as the underlying theme. We, as humans, try to live together as one, all the while struggling to comprehend, and suffering under, our own fates. This is an issue I’ve personally lived with for a long time. I was very happy to have the opportunity to share my vision through the film. I’d like to thank everyone who worked with me on this project!”
Film Dance consists of 30 dance short films that were shot during the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, involving over 250 artists from more than 25 countries.
