BBC Arts Dance Passion ‘Neon Romance’ Short Film

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/hNh4BmCgf0KGp8SqHtHDd5/neon-romance-headlights-capture-plymouth-s-love-of-after-dark-rhymes-and-flips

After dark. Breaking the rules. Fuelled by Plymouth’s passion for drift cars, footwork, flips, MC’s, show cars and dancing the night away.

Turning the key on a combustion engine of engineering, imagination, hybrid cars and rebellious dancers.
Caught in the headlights 6 individuals come together for a night on top of colourful show cars – sharing Afrobeat, Breaking, Chicago Footwork, Contemporary and Parkour. Putting neon lights, shimmering car-shells, whirring engines and spinning bodies in the driver’s seat.

Across Plymouth’s modified car, street sports and dance scene: when the music starts, the night begins and the cars rock up – everyone’s equal.

With a score by dynamic drum and bass MC Maddy V and directed by multi-award winning choreographer Laura Kriefman this is a celebration of the world-class talent in Plymouth.
