Director Statement

Polly, Paulina, Pauline, was a chance to feature Indigenous dancers in lead roles and tell a cross-cultural story of passionate, toxic love between two young women whose ambition and dreams intersect and pass each other by like ships in the night. When Pauline dies tragically in an accident that injures her best friend, Polly, the surviving woman is left with fragmented memories as she feels two souls molding into one.
