Artist Chat: Bodies in Spaces – Where Site Specificity Meets the Screen
Thursday, Oct 1, 2020, at 10am MST
Artist Chat Series co-hosted by Sans Souci Festival of Dance Cinema and the University of Colorado Boulder’s Department of Theatre & Dance
Check out SansSouciFest.Org to see what screenings are available now!
Once again we partnered with our friends at the University of Colorado Boulder’s Department of Theatre & Dance to bring you our 17th Annual Premiere Event, including one ticketed virtual screening of many of the season’s top-scoring films, as well as the Artist Chat Series. The Artist Chats were all free of admission, featuring artists from our Covid-19/Quarantine Challenge virtual screening and our Annual Premiere virtual screening. We hope you enjoy this recap of what was a very lively conversation!
Sans Souci has a long history of screening dance films created for and with specific, memorable locations, intersecting and overlapping with ‘site-specific’ choreography. We ask an international panel of Sans Souci contributing artists how they moved into this kind of work, and about the process of putting movement in the site (access, choreography, improvisation, and adaptation, and challenges). What concerns about an environment draw an artist to it?
Join us for the Zoom chat moderated by Heike Salzer, and featuring:
• “Etch” directors Abby Warrilow & Lewis Gourlay (U.K.)
• “The Last Children” director Fu Le (France)
• “Genna” director Thomas Delord (Belgium)
• “Habitat” directors Sheila Garcia & Inés Valderas (Spain)
