THE SYNOPSIS: Pas de Deux
PAS DE DEUX is the first in a series of short films entitled BEDTIME STORIES celebrating women of color experiencing personal transformation through dance within the privacy of their boudoir. PAS DE DEUX is defined as: 1: a dance or figure for two performers. 2: an intricate relationship or activity involving two parties or things. The literal French translation is a step for two. This story follows Gigi, a free spirited woman, that moves through NYC as a trumpeted “being” accompanies her. During a lunch meeting with a girlfriend, she is called to “dance” by a lover, who ultimately does not follow through on an afternoon tryst. But all is not lost because she discovers that the best dance is danced solo. This story is about self-love and reveling in the ecstasy of one’s own company. And yet, from the interaction between Gigi and her personified cherub, are we ever truly alone?
