Set in the world of contemporary dance, Only Dance Can Save Us explores the ups and downs of the artistic process. Retired dancer and down on her luck choreographer, Sophie Florence has been commissioned to create a piece for her estranged, recently departed, mentor's memorial exhibition.
Written and directed by John J. Kaiser, Only Dance Can Save Us, a feature length film, challenges traditional cinematic form while acting as an interdisciplinary vehicle to create a portrait of the artistic process.
Only Dance Can Save Us is generously funded by a Jerome Foundation Artist Grant.
