11 Million Reasons - Asian Premiere
11 Million Reasons was conceptualised by People Dancing in 2014 to positively profile Deaf and disabled people in dance activity in the UK. The project developed from a core vision to de-segregate Deaf and disabled people, and to help facilitate a change in perceptions that can surround those who participate in dance.
With funding from Unlimited Impact, People Dancing commissioned emerging photographer, Sean Goldthorpe to create 20 high quality images inspired by iconic dance moments in film. These stunning, powerful, emotive, and humorous images - many with a subtle but relevant message - in which Deaf and disabled people are centre stage, re-imagining iconic roles from well-known and loved films from a diversity of genres, act as a resource and inspiration to hearing impairment and disabled people who dance already, and those who would like to dance in the future.
Its Asian premiere is presented by the British Council in Hong Kong at Popsy Modern Kitchen from 5 October to 20 November 2016.
