Winner of a prestigious dancescreen 2019 award in the category of SCREEN CHOREOGRAPHY OVER 15 MINUTES... Filmed on location in a derelict suburban shopping mall and featuring an ensemble of disabled and non-disabled dancers, the film explores human interdependence, strength, and vulnerability. The dance film is a re-imagining of the stage work of the same name and dancers Amy Butler, Laura Jones, Chris Pavia, David Willdridge and Dave Toole, who devised the original piece, all appear in the film.

The award-winning inclusive contemporary dance film Artificial Things was directed by Sophie Fiennes and conceived and performed by Stopgap Dance Company. This is an inclusive dance production featuring the internationally renown disabled dancer Dave Toole. This inclusive contemporary dance art film was originally a stage production, which had its London premiere at Sadler's Wells.
