5 Days to Dance

This documentary gives us a fascinating insight into two choreographers: Wilfried Van Poppel and Amaya Lubeigt. Based in Germany where they run dance workshops with secondary school classes, for the first time they will leave central Europe and travel to Spain to do a dance workshop with Spanish children. The challenge: to turn a class of self-conscious, teenagers into dancers with a performance on stage at the end. When confronted with the idea, teachers and students alike show disbelief. The youngsters are forced to break away from their social roles precisely when these are starting to take shape in their lives. The good-looking boy is no longer the most admired; the shy recluse takes a step forward... a microcosm put through a small big bang.

**The screening of '5 Days to Dance' on Wednesday 7th will be followed by a dance workshop which will take place at Danceable (only on Wednesday 7th).
