“I AM”, produced by Meehow Films, is an inspirational and moving exploration of the nature of ability that showcases the talents of four very different young people, challenging the audience’s preconceptions about diversity.
The short film features students and alumni of the Orpheus Centre including current nominee for the One Dance UK awards and the BBC’s Greatest Dancer contestant, Andrew Self.
The film stars former Orpheus students Awa, Steve and Sandra and was filmed on location at the Orpheus Centre, Oxted Barn Theatre, Caterham’s Ridge Radio and the London Colisuem.
