Partizan's award-winning filmmaker NONO and cinematographer Eira Wyn Jones capture the unique story of Danish-born dancer Toke Broni Strandby
Partizan director NONO has released a new short film 'Toke'. Shot during the course of the Covid-19 pandemic, ‘Toke’ is among 15 films that were produced by Jacob Jonas The Company in partnership with Somewhere Magazine for the platform Films.Dance.

The films showcase engagement from over 150 artists, across 52 different cities, within 25 countries, through non-traditional collaborations across cultures and continents. The series connects the perspectives of diverse artists from a range of disciplines, dance genres, abilities and experiences.


Set in the urban metropolis of London, 'Toke' is an intimate portrait of Danish-born dancer Toke Broni Strandby. An inspiring story about triumph, the film is a celebration of the beautiful resilience of the human spirit. London-based award-winning filmmaker NONO and cinematographer Eira Wyn Jones captured Toke’s unique story, set to an original score by Paulo Gallo and with an original costume by Japanese designer, Kazuya Kojima.


"This film was the perfect chance to explore visually the struggles that everyone endures while striving to achieve their goals." said NONO. "I wanted the viewer to be able to experience the duality of this process, the pain and the joy that comes with following one’s dream. Toke was so generous to share with me his story, and I wanted to create an honest but visually powerful portrait of him."
