SYNOPSIS

Georgian dance is steeped in tradition; all the more so for Merab, who hails from a family of dancers. When a spot opens up in the national ensemble, he leaps at the chance for an audition and falls into the orbit of the newest male dancer, Irakli. Under the eye of friends and girlfriends, their rivalry grows into a forbidden fruit that is equal parts sweet and intoxicating.

Inspired by the lives of queer Georgians, And Then We Danced is a love story told through movement and bodies, set to the beat of everything from Georgian folk music to Robyn’s “Honey”. The young leads’ tender performances recall Call Me by Your Name, providing urgent representation to a community that has long been side-lined in conservative Georgia.
