Summary
Dances of Ecstacy is a sensory journey into the mesmerizing world of trance and ecstasy that binds dancers from Manhattan to Morocco. Filmmakers Michelle Mahrer and Nicole Ma travelled to traditional and modern day rituals to discover what is the altered state experience which people seek through dance. Dances of Ecstacy is a visual and aural feast for the senses, an innovative documentary blending exciting dance rituals, evocative imagery, interviews and a spellbinding global music soundtrack. The film is an inspiration to dance, and to reconnect with a sense of the sacred that many have lost touch with in modern life. Accolades "Dances of Ecstasy is enthralling in its evocation of a mental and physical release that most of us long for" - The Age, Australia "A mesmerizing and uplifting experience" - Carol Middleton, State of the Arts "The calming and visually beautiful Dances of Ecstasy offers a mesmerizing journey" - Film Forward USA "Rich imagery, gorgeous music ... make for an unparalleled sensory experience." - Citybeat Los Angeles "The film provides a rare insider look into seldom seen rituals. It makes for a compelling ride that replicates the flow and force of the experiences it documents." - LA Weekly
