Short dance film supported by The Hackney Showrooms
Figure is an experimental dance film about boys growing up without fathers. It explores how early detachment from a father figure affects emotional growth and engagement with the world.
Through a dynamic fusion of physical theatre and hip-hop dance, the film follows two young men as they search for answers both outside and inside themselves.
