Five Days to Dance at SBIFF

The Spanish documentary will be screened at Santa Barbara International Film Festival

One morning a couple of dancers turn up in a high school classroom. It’s Monday and they announce to the group of teenagers that they have five days to get up on stage and dance. The youngsters are forced to break away from their social roles precisely when these are starting to take final shape in their lives. The good-looking boy is no longer the most admired, the shy one takes a step forward… Wilfried Van Poppel and Amaya Lubeigt are the choreographers. He’s Dutch; she’s from San Sebastian. This is their challenge: five days, a class of teenagers, a microcosmos put through a small big bang.
