Review

4/5
An experimental dance film about adventure.
‘Rejoining Jane’ is an experimental dance film by Brighton-based dance artists Tick Tock Bridget. The film tells the adventurous tale of Jane, expressed through dance and music, who is in search for her long-lost brother. The short stars Rosa Firbank, Jessica Miller and Harriet Morris and explores themes of family, hope, adventure and love. A joyous watch from start-to-finish.

The 17-minute film opens with Jane engrossed in a tale at her country house. Through narration, by Harriet Morris, we learn of her brother Leo’s mysterious absence and her desire to find him. A duo of dancers convey the narrative of adventure outside the home and along the breath-taking beaches and coastline of Sussex.

Rejoining Jane Short Film
Tick Tock Bridget have created a remarkable piece of filmmaking that beautifully showcases their talent and original choreography. Visually, the film is shot with high-quality cinematography (Sophie Newton), wrapped up with a jovial musical arrangement and neat post-production. The audience will certainly be entertained by the experimental narrative and the craft of the dancers. The use of a 17-minute running time may lead to the loss of viewer engagement, due to long periods of dance routines – this could have been trimmed down slightly. Despite the runtime, the film is an enjoyable watch – particularly for those who are interested in dance. Highly recommended.
