Films.Dance, a groundbreaking new global free film series produced by and under the creative direction of LA-based Jacob Jonas The Company. Films.Dance is in partnership with Somewhere Magazine and is co-presented by Harris Theater, The Wallis, and The Soraya.

Desmond Richardson, Co-Founder and Co-Artistic Director of Complexions Contemporary Ballet, dances a new work choreographed by Jacob Jonas. "Edging Normal" is a metaphorical tale of a man’s struggle to shed his past in order to feel completely free. Directed by Andre Bato, Edging Normal features music co-composed by visionary Steve Hackman and jazz icon Dave Koz, a nine-time Grammy Award-nominated saxophonist.

Watch the films at the Films.Dance website, on their Instagram, or on their Facebook page. Watch the trailer here. A series of weekly conversation and engagement events is in development and will allow for deeper exploration of the series themes, creative process, and perspectives of collaborating artists.
