Project Kickstarter: SUCCESS!

A huge, massive, sincere, grateful, from the bottom of our hearts THANK YOU to all of our contributors who made “and time yet” a reality.

We created the movement material, bought the costumes, planned and prepped, traveled to Kent, shot the film, fed the dancers & production crew, traveled back to London, edited the film, re-edited the film, planned a launch party, threw a launch party and it was all possible thanks to these generous, supportive, lovely people below – our producers!

We had an INCREDIBLE launch evening on 11 August at the Effra Social in Brixton and were so excited to share the night with some talented short films and their pretty awesome makers, as well as two rocking bands. It was a great atmosphere to premiere “and time yet” to the world.

Now the very last hurdle… We are busy putting the very, very, very last touches on the film and will be uploading it to an online video platform near you imminently!

In the mean time, sit back, relax, know how much we are grateful to our producers (you Kickstarter dream team!) and stay tuned!

With many thanks,
Amy & Heather and our wonderful Electric Copy Film pals

Every Way Up Has Its Way Down – Photo Gallery

With London as our backdrop and home, in Every Way Up Has Its Way Down, we look back to a time when Brick Lane meant Beigels and trace the footsteps of historic Jewish immigrants in the East End.  Simultaneously mapping the paths of our own ancestors, our cultural experiences, and how in 2013 we find ourselves both inside and outside of these inherited and learned social conventions, we ask:  ‘Do we know where we are going, if we don’t know where we have been?’

The piece interrogates our relationship with unknown pasts whilst considering our current etchings on the city’s landscape.  Sharing a Jewish background, we have each grown up and experienced this heritage in very different ways, in locations on opposite sides of the globe.  Now, we are both aliens in one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world uncovering the past in order to   place ourselves in the present.  Every Way Up charts our attempts to find home in a place and context where we feel like outsiders.

Every Way Up debuted in July 2013 at Rich Mix, as part of the Stories of London festival.  Images by Virginia Munday.

Every Way Up has its Way Down

We are terribly excited to be working on our latest piece, Every Way Up has its Way Down, which will be presented at Rich Mix in Shoreditch on the 12th of July.

We had a great shoot with Alicia Clarke (who you may have noticed is a frequent nylon collaborator!) back on a very, very cold (in fact, snowy) February afternoon.  We shot in multiple locations down Brick Lane, situating ourselves at the heart of the old Jewish quarter of the East End.  The piece explores our shared Jewish background, and how we have found ourselves (and each other) in London, a city where the footsteps of many immigrants continue to ripple through our daily consciousness.  We explore our own histories alongside those of the many historical Jewish immigrants who once trod the same streets as we now do, and look to question whether a sense of belonging can be found, as much in a strange city, as in a familiar culture.

You can find more information on the Rich Mix website: http://www.richmix.org.uk/whats-on/event/every-way-up-has-its-way-down-and-lets-get-angry/

We will share the evening with performance group Portmanteau, and the evening will form part of Rich Mix’s ‘Stories of London’ season, which runs throughout 2013.
