The Sofa Dance
The Sofa Dance is a short film commissioned as part of BBC Arts' Filmed in Lockdown, where 30 fantastic acrobats physicalise the shared exhaustion, frustration and complications of living within drastically limited space, creating absurdity and beauty while stuck on their sofas.
Enjoy a screening of The Sofa Dance then use resources, specially commissioned for The Spark Festival, to get some inspiration and help to create your own sofa dance.
