UP HERE by Project Y

Originally filmed in 2013, UP HERE is a 30 minute dance feature film directed by Paul Malek and featuring youth collective Project Y.

Centred around the issues that face the youth of today, UP HERE was created through discussions and workshops with a company of thirty dancers aged 12 to 22 years old. The film explores issues such as expectation, body image, bullying and loss, to tell a unique narrative through the medium of dance.

The film features music by Vanessa Amorosi, Lowlakes, Peter Nigido, Sean Crowley and choreography by Kim Adam, Lucy Doherty, Freya List, Erica Sobol and Paul Malek.
