Interview with House of Joy

Describe, in as many or as few words as you see fit, the genesis of or inspiration behind your film.
This film was inspired by my personal struggle to let go of bad coping strategies — ways of making it through early life that aren’t helpful anymore.
What is interesting or intriguing to you about engaging with dance for film vs. dance for stage? Or, if you are coming from a film background and working with dance is a secondary medium for you, what drew you to wanting to capture and work with dance?
As a filmmaker, I’m drawn to dance as a way to abstract the human experience while still connecting with the people on screen.
