Another video from TenduTV’s Essential Dance Film series to begin the week. For those who did not catch this work in live performance at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the creators of  The Silence transformed the choreography of Nikki Mclusky into this beautiful and stirring film, archiving and creating a new work of art at the same time.
