“There are so many people out there, everywhere, it’s impossible to be alone. And phones, texts, emails, television, satellites, Internet.”
Dancing Alone Every Night is a touching and humorous imagining of one woman’s experience of afterlife. It takes as a starting point the true story of the death of a woman, Joyce Vincent, in London in 2006. She was found alone, slumped in front on her TV, which was still playing, having remained there for approximately two and a half years. Raquel Diana uses black comedy to explore violence, relationships and social welfare and to pose questions about remoteness within our own communities, extreme disconnectedness made possible by a closed door and vulnerability so fierce that it renders certain people invisible.
Director: Camila González
