The Stronger will be gabrielle lansner & company’s third short film. Directed by Gabrielle Lansner, the film revolves around two women who are grappling with love, loss, jealousy and trust. Loosely inspired by August Strindberg’s play “The Stronger”, the work follows the emotional journey of a woman in a loveless marriage and her relationship to her husband’s former girlfriend, who she thinks is still involved with him.

The story will be told through our subtle and emotionally charged choreography, realistic vignettes and social dances:focusing on the psychological dynamic between the two woman who are in love with the same man, or are they?

The cast of 12 performers features Paula McGonagle who has worked with gabrielle lansner & company since 1997, as the wife and McKenzie Frye as the girlfriend, a choral section for 8 women dancers, the husband and child. We have completed shooting the project in a beautiful event space in the West Village of NYC.  Doug Karr, an award winning filmmaker is the cinematographer and Dean Taucher, currently the production designer for Law & Order:SVU is our designer.

Now that our dance/theater company is making films there is actually less foundation funding available to us for our film projects. We now need to raise funds to finish our film. The money raised through our Kickstarter campaign will go directly to editing, post-production costs and commissioning a composer to write the score for the film.

All contributions are fully tax-deductible.
