AnOther Magazine has joined Sadler’s Wells to create MOVEment, a series of films fusing fashion and dance that will premiere later this month in London. The project, supported by the Ford Vignale brand, is a unique series of short films uniting fashion, dance and cinema in a radical new way. AnOther Magazine has invited seven of the biggest names in fashion to create bespoke costumes for seven specially choreographed performances, interpreted for the screen by seven pioneering directors.

MOVEment will premiere at Sadler’s Wells’ Lilian Baylis Studio on Saturday the 18 April, followed by a public online release via anothermag.com on the 20 April, as well as a print exhibition to feature in AnOther Mag’s Autumn/Winter 2015 issue.

AnOther Magazine founder Jefferson Hack comments, “This project has been a labour of love for a number of talented craftsmen, creating completely bespoke collaborations that appreciate dance and fashion from a new perspective.”

The premiere will be preceded by a live Q&A with milliner Stephen Jones. After the screening, there will be a live performance of Russell Maliphant’s seminal solo TWO, performed by Russell Maliphant Company Dancer, Carys Staton, with music by Andy Cowton and lighting by Michael Hulls.
