Storyline

Dancing Like Home is a personal documentary short exploring the realities of going back 'home' to Africa. Director Joyce Guy, whose love for African dance sets her in pursuit to find the meanings of the traditional dances of Casamance, Senegal but once there her expectations of this culturally rich region are challenged. Going with Malang Bayo, a former member of the National Ballet of Senegal, born in Casamance, they travel 'home' to distinct villages of varying sizes, tribes and leadership. The story navigates through the exploration of the dance and its traditions but also the challenges she faces in Africa as an outsider who is further impeded by a language barrier, and by being a non-Muslim woman in a patriarchal society.
