DON GNU’s film ‘As a Start’ is based upon the DON GNU choreography by the same name and developed and shot in Havana, Cuba. Featuring dancers Simon Beyer-Pedersen and Peter Lyngaard Petersen, as well as the amazing dancers from Danze Teatro Retazos of Havana, Cuba, the film pushes to the extremes of the most intimate moments as well as raw and expressive highs.
