A song about being judged and misunderstood; the only place to hide from the questions is in your dreams, behind your eyelids, the only place secrets are safe and secure. Keep your eyes shut and you’re invisible.

Written and performed and everything…by Portia Graves

Very much enjoying working with the vastly talented choreographer Jennifer Essex… love this film.

LIKE is a fun and revealing creative discussion through the body of two dancers extrapolated from the real life text messages of a couple in the early stages of a relationship. It will raise questions about the roles of tactile contact, body language and physical representation versus the one-stage removed world of social media and online interaction and how intimacy has the potential to be both harmed and heightened by technology.

Choreographer: Jennifer Essex
Filmmaker: Alex Blogg
Dancers: Harriet Bone and David Lloyd
Composer: Portia Graves
