Directors Comments

Moment’s is a love letter to all those Disney classics that used the power of dance to express powerful emotions that couldn’t be described simply with words. With the collaborative team that created ‘Sophie’s Fortune’ it didn’t take long to hit the ground running with orchestrating such a large concept. Set to the backdrop of a modern romanticised London and utilising talent from the West Ends ‘Chorus Line’ we were able to, in a short period of time, create large scale dance set pieces in some of the most beautiful yet hidden locations in the centre of London.

In the world of ‘Moments’ everyday people break out into dance when nearby couples fall in Love. Joel, just like everyone else is excited to be involved in these moments, but recently he’s down on his luck until he accidentally has a moment of his own.
