The Darktown Cakewalk: Celebrated from the House of FAME


Commissioned by The Work Room and Sorcha Dallas, The Darktown Cakewalk: Celebrated from the House of FAME is a film about the improvisational development of the performance by artist Linder Sterling at The Arches for Glasgow International.

Dramatic high-definition sequences are interspersed with documentary glimpses of the intensive processes and conversations which lead to the creation of movement.
