Multicap’s creative dance group will hit the big screen this May in a cinematic creative movement video to feature in Queensland’s Anywhere Festival.

The Pine Rivers and Petrie Creative Dance Group have performed in a nine-minute contemporary video titled ‘Storm’ to launch in May.

Filmed in three parts, Storm features 15 customers performing ‘before, during and after’ the storm.

Multicap’s Creative Arts Program Manager Suzanne Misso said the dancers have worked with Dance Facilitator Emma Wilson at Pine Rivers for nearly 12 months and have taken their performance to the next level.

“Our customers have become accustomed to being filmed and watching themselves on screen, so we’ve been able to direct a series of performances for this video with some amazing support,” Suzanne said. 

The video was filmed both within the ‘Soft touch’ exhibition at the Caboolture Regional Gallery, and at Multicap’s Pine Rivers Community Hub.

A $5000 grant from the Moreton Bay Regional Council allowed the team to hire a professional videographer and editor.

“It was phenomenal to film in the gallery and work with a professional videographer and editor – we have a fantastic product,” Suzanne said. “The artists are thrilled with the outcome, and we are so proud of their performance – they all did an amazing job. We can’t wait for everyone to see it.”
The film will be screened across several locations in Pine Rivers, Caboolture and Redcliffe during the May to June festival.

Suzanne’s tip when watching the film: ‘Make sure to wear the headphones as the music is spectacular’.

Storm will be launched at Redcliffe Library on Wednesday, 18 May and screened at the following locations: 

Redcliffe Library, Wednesday, 18 May – launch and screening to 5 June
