When dancer and teacher Joy Ndombeson heard an elderly couple’s love story, he was inspired to retell it through dance–the good and the bad. The piece titled Arnie and Brenda’s Story: Love is a critique of the fairy tale about love that society sells, says Ndombeson. “The story that’s unrealistic versus the real love, which is messy, hard but priceless and worth the work.”
The video, shot by Jeremy Neipp, features Ndombeson who teaches hip hop at Purposed II Praise Dance School in Fresno, California and Alyssa Toles.
