We are excited to invite you to the New York premiere of the documentary film “Like I’m Flying”.
Age old classical Indian texts outline dance theories and methodologies as part of healing practices, and current neuroscience reflects the drastic impact it can have on how the brain responds to the external environment. We begin this film with a series of case studies that highlight the physical and mental challenges our subjects face. Next we shift the focus from the ailment to the therapy; showcasing the truly empowering and transformative power of Dance and movement. Dance and movement can help individuals realign feelings of disability, improve motor control, connect and share experiences, and improve social competence and expression within the greater community.
Overall, we aim to capture the novel and powerful effects of Dance and movement, and bring it from the fringes as an alternative therapy to one that is more regularly sought out.
