Today we’re featuring director and choreographer Josh Hawkins, whose dreamscape dance film ‘The Blackest Day’ explores fragmented memories of broken soldiers.
Taking inspiration from the Kendal Pals – soldiers from Cumberland and Westmorland who fought in the Battle of the Somme in World War I – ‘The Blackest Day’ struggles through distant memories to re-connect to the fallen men.
Josh Hawkins is a director and choreographer based in the North West. He graduated from the Northern School of Contemporary Dance and is currently creating new work across a number of creative projects with his own dance company, Hawk Dance Theatre.
Josh is speaking alongside other young filmmakers and producer Ian Fenton on Saturday 14 January at HOME in Manchester, in a special event on how to get commissioned by Random Acts North.
