Others is a movement-based interdisciplinary interpretation of Weimar era German silent film Different from the Others. Released in 1919, it was the first gay rights movie ever made and tells the story of a talented gay violinist who is blackmailed by an extortionist, featuring vignettes of gay life in Weimar Berlin. Others adapts this film to the medium of live performance, with an interdisciplinary twist. Integrating interactive intertitles (title cards present in silent films) and a musical score including live violin music accompanies the movement based silent story.
