Half of Us is a captivating new film by acclaimed choreographer Robyn Mineko Williams. The Princess Grace Award winner and former Hubbard Street Dancer creates a mesmerizing ebb and flow of melody and movement, as two dancers and two musicians merge their artistry upon a lonely landscape. At times playful and pensive, Half of Us invites us into a 16-minute meditation on the heart of human connection and the myriad of ways we experience it.
