Private Project

...Even a Sparrow Has a Home

This dance short film is a contemporary solo that explores one person's search for their inner home while surrounded by a greater world. The discoveries the dancer makes brings them closer to the peace and contentment that they crave.

Myrielle Bernier-Acuna dances the technical yet sensorial solo with a vulnerability that draws the viewer into her meditative world.

Director Statement

Cathy is excited to present her first Screendance '...even a sparrow has a home', a film that combines her two loves, dance and the planet we call home.

This piece was first created during lockdowns of the pandemic over video calls. It was reworked over a year later and made into the Screendance now being presented.
