Building developers have forced the closure of roller-rinks across London, edging out large swathes of the city’s skate community. Combining balletic choreography with an eclectic soundtrack of contemporary Disco, Jazz, and Jungle, this film crafts a vibrant elegy to inner-city public space whilst highlighting the need to protect access for creative communities.
Inspired by real events, this short dance film depicts a group of roller-skaters as they take to the floors of an empty shopping complex
