Dive, Baby, Dive is a dance film that exists in significant darkness. Influenced by 70’s era Grindhouse movies, superheros, comic books and classic female archetypes, Dive, Baby, Dive tells an abstracted narrative that copes with being a victim, a survivor and a hero. Initially created for the stage, Kilmurray collaborated with The Good Night Ladies to reimagine this work for film.
