Whoever You Are
award-winning new film from Javier De Frutos, produced and performed by Piper & Chantry
Renowned director Javier De Frutos in collaboration with producers and performers Piper and Chantry, has created the award-winning new short film, 'Whoever You Are' which has just received it's US premiere screening in Hollywood at the Raleigh Studios.
Shocking, sensual, raw, radical are words synonymous with De Frutos’ work. Renowned for creating brutal yet beautiful film and stage work, De Frutos has consistently stunned the British dance world with his ability to make work that not only is violently challenging, but also sears the stage with its intelligence and wit. He is one of only three artists in the history of the Olivier Awards to have received nominations in all dance categories.
In July 2021 De Frutos commenced work with Rae Piper and Paul Chantry on a new short film. Piper and Chantry play 'She' and 'He' who are the two characters who feature in this cinematic adaptation of Walt Whitman’s evocative poem, ‘Whoever You Are Holding Me Now in Hand’.
Since it's release, Whoever You Are has received multiple awards:
