And Then We Danced is a vibrant and intense love story set in the dynamic but ultra-conservative world of traditional Georgian dance.
Young male dancer Merab has been training since a young age at the National Georgian Ensemble with his dance partner Mary. His world is suddenly turned upside down when the charismatic and carefree Irakli arrives and becomes both his strongest rival and his forbidden desire. Merab finds himself having to break free and risk it all.
Levan Akin calls upon the talents of actors and physicality of professional dancers (including lead Levan Gelbakhiani in his first acting role) for his portrail of the intensity of desire.
And Then We Danced contains a sequence of flashing lights which might affect customers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
