Dear… Love, Sis (2021), is MKArts's first dance, short film by MK Abadoo and Judith Bauer, with co-direction from Torian Ugworgi. The film is a time expansive exploration of sistering technologies over generations. Also including young dancer and film artist, Ella Abadoo, in her dance short debut, three generations braid together their intersecting worlds of joy, grief, dreams, love, sisterhood and unicorns.
Dear… Love, Sis, was made possible by a commission from the Dance Exchange, as a part of their inaugural Dance On Creative Aging Festival.
