The fact that your age and dance skills do not matter in dance is made clear in Dancing with Maria. The legendary dancer Maria Fux, who still dances and teaches dance classes at the age of 90, shows the ease of finding self-expression by moving your body. The search for inner power which drives you to dance is captured in the documentary Bobbi Jene. What the American artist reveals in her performances is not only her body but mainly her soul. In the competitive environment of the American dance scene, she searches for her artistic identity clashing with her personal life. In the Darkness of the Theater looks behind the scenes of the National Ballet of Portugal. The success of the acclaimed ensemble with a 40-year tradition depends both on the immense effort of all its members and on every subtle movement.
