GLÖWR is an audiovisual collaboration between Director Jessie Rodger and Producer Sun Alexander. It’s a 15 minute visual EP featuring Ballet Lorent Dancer John Kendall as he moves through the raw landscape of Blaenavon, South Wales.
GLÖWR means miner in Welsh and this project is an exploration of the harshness and contrasts at the heart of a life lived underground. John expresses this as he dances, sharing the powerful stories held within the landscape in his visceral movements.
Three films make up GLÖWR and each video is a chapter in the story, shot at a different location in the Coalfield.
The three chapters are made to be watched in sequence as they are released to finally form one short film.
