after love

After Love

After Love is a short, experimental dance film featuring the poetry of Dani Gill. Dani's first anthology of poems entitled 'After Love' deals with the grief, loss and transcendence she experienced in the wake of the end of a long term relationship. Stephanie received an Arts Council bursary in 2018 to research a work of dance in conjunction with Dani's poetry, and this short film is a product of that research.
