REVERENCE, 19min., USA, Dance/Drama
Directed by Rachel Hemsley
"He danced for fame. She danced through pain. For old times' sake and to new beginnings...in a fleeting moment." - Set in the world of dance, RÉVÉRENCE is a story of relationships which resonates with audiences of all backgrounds, including the LGBTQ+ community. The story is told through the eyes of two dancers who began on the same path, yet went completely different directions in their careers and their destiny. Through the tragedy and the person who pulled them apart, a new tragic misfortune causes them to reunite, gifting them each a new clarity - even if it is just for one fleeting moment in a dance studio.
Drawn to the masterful script of RÉVÉRENCE, with its riveting story addressing relationships, Rachel was excited to dive into this project that is very different from those she has previously directed. The elements of dance and how it intertwines within the story in a truthful way, intrigued her, as well.
