The Heart Dances

Director: Rebecca Tansley
Producer: Robin Laing
Cast: Jiří Bubeniček, Otto Bubeniček

award

Three years after twin brothers Jiří and Otto Bubeniček created a single-act performance based on Jane Campion’s iconic film The Piano, the Royal New Zealand Ballet commissioned the Czech dancers to develop the work even further. With only four weeks until the premiere, the twins arrive in New Zealand with no understanding of the country’s history or of the indigenous Māori culture, setting the stage for a voyage into uncharted territory — not only for them, but for everyone involved.

2018, NR, New Zealand, Documentary, 98 minutes
