For Open Art Surgery at CURVE, Leicester, I worked with actor and producer Akshay Sharma to produce an original film entitled, ‘It’s An Art’. Open Art Surgery (formerly The Surgery) offers Hip Hop theatre performers and companies (dancers, musicians, emcees and visual artists) the opportunity to develop and experiment with new ideas, share new work publicly and receive mentorship from Jonzi D and other Hip Hop Theatre aficionados.
‘It’s an Art’ was envisioned on the Monday and premiered at Curve on the Friday. Every minute in between was spent solidifying the concept, composing the music, filming, editing and teching for the show, whilst under the mentorship of John Berkovitch.
The film was very well received and has since been sumbitted for various festivals and awards including the We The Peoples Film Festival.
Directed by Kieran Vyas
Starring Akshay Sharma
Original Music by PJ Govind
