Language: English English Sub-Titles

Recently arrived in New York from Kansas on a ballet scholarship, 18-year-old Chip (Ryan Steele, of Broadway’s Newsies) hopes that his years of hard training haven’t been all for naught. Joining a small Soho-based modern dance troupe, Chip soon discovers that a dancer’s career and personal life are inseparable, and that professional experience and romance often parallel the challenges of artistic expression.

Structured around a five-section dance and set mostly in the troupe’s loft rehearsal space, this is a raw, real, and refreshing examination of the politics of movement. Featuring kinetic energy from New York’s finest dancers (Reed Luplau, Catherine Miller, Luke Murphy) and choreographed by Jonah Bokaer of the legendary Merce Cunningham Dance Company. "Five Dances" is Brown’s most dynamic film to date, and a classic tale of seeking love and success in the big city.
