"Project Home" Is a New Dance Film Unlike Anything You've Seen Before

July 9, 2018

It took no fewer than three years for choreographers Chris Martin and Larkin Poynton to create Project Home, a 45-minute film that brings together artists from all over the world (including the inspirational Mari Madrid!). And their finished product is sure to take your breath away. Seriously, guys: It’s beautiful.

Martin and Poynton’s vision was to tell the story of a “lost soul” through dance in an innovative, non-linear structure. Featuring an original score, the film centers on themes of home, family, and identity with the incredible landscapes of Iceland as a backdrop. Its message resonates across the globe, exploring the question of what it means to belong.
