The lives of the curious Daantje and the embittered ex-ballerina Natasja become intertwined. A melancholic and ironic tragicomedy as only Dutch director Jos Stelling can tell it, shot in sober yet romantic black-and-white.
De dans van Natasja is about loneliness and friendship, about the story of homeless Daantje and ex-ballerina Natasja. When they first meet, Natasja doesn’t care for Daantje. But fate and their loneliness seem to condemn them to each other. When Natasja decides to return to the place of her childhood - her grandmother's dacha far away from civilisation - Daantje wants to go with her. Together they undertake the long physical and spiritual journey to the place of her childhood, to the place where she was once happy. Along the way, they lose all their possessions and eventually lose their way.
Director Jos Stelling will be present for a q&a after the screening on Friday November 11
