If you’re new to dance film, this is the screening for you! This event highlights selections from the Sans Souci Festival's 18th annual festival season. Featuring documentaries, music videos, and short dance films, this lineup hails from the U.S., Brazil, India, Ireland, France, Netherlands, and the U.K., and has a little something for everyone.
The program will include some styles you know and love — tap, ballet, and contemporary dance — and some styles you may not be as familiar with — Nangiarkoothu, traditional Irish dance, and so much more. With viewers who have never experienced a dance cinema screening in mind, this particular program features as much variety as possible, illustrating the diversity, depth, and artistry of the films in the genre.
This screening runs approximately 75 minutes plus one 10-minute intermission. A strobe light is present in one film.
