Moments in Motion 2

Marlene Millar and Phillip Szporer
January 25–28, 2011

In 2004, Marlene Millar and Philip Szporer made a documentary, Moments in Motion, that followed the creative lives of seven Canadian choreographers from diverse cultures and backgrounds: Natasha Bakht from Ottawa, Byron Chief-Moon from Lethbridge, Day Helesic from Vancouver, Hinda Essadiqi and Audrey Lehouillier, both from Montréal, Malgorzata Nowacka from Toronto, Sarah Stoker from St. John’s. The film used cinéma-vérité depictions of their communities, studios, and homes to capture the essence of their day-to-day worlds, as well as dance sequences to reveal their creative process. Working in residence, Millar and Szporer considered a new phase of this project that would use both video and the web in a multi-platform documentary series.

Millar and Szporer founded Mouvement Perpétuel, a Montréal-based media production company specializing in arts programming, in 2001.
