Join Zoom Meeting
Meeting ID: 987 3142 2266

Artists of so many kinds are living differently as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. In this chat, an international panel of Sans Souci’s contributing artists will discuss questions of staying creative right now. What does it mean to be creatively hungry? Has your practice shifted?

Artist Chat: Intersectionality and Identity in Screendance

Wednesday, Sept 30, 9am MST

Join Zoom Meeting
Meeting ID: 958 2069 2790
Passcode: 916236

An international panel of Sans Souci’s contributing artists will discuss how race, racial justice, and gender and sexual orientation and expression are involved in their work. We’ll ask: How do you think about the bodies you put onscreen in your work? How do you consider an audience’s lenses for viewing your work while making it? What role does screendance in general play in this conversation? How would you change the scene (dance, film, dance film, film festivals, academy, any of the above) in the next 50 years to create a better landscape for all involved?

Join us for the Zoom chat moderated by Cara Hagan, and featuring:
• “Making Men” directors – Antoine Panier & Harold George (Belgium)
• “Jah Intervention” directors Welket Bungué (Portugal) & Daniel Santos (Brazil)
• “TIA: THIS is Africa” director Matthieu Maunier-Rossi (France)


Artist Chat: Bodies in Spaces – where site specificity meets the screen

Thursday, Oct 1, 10am MST

Join Zoom Meeting
Meeting ID: 950 2761 2717
Passcode: 916236

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’ll 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)

Members of Sans Souci’s curatorial team will discuss criteria for selection and trends in the field of screendance.

With Love,

We have started a new project for dancers and dance students from all over the world, and it would be great if all the dancers that you know and have contact with could also participate. We simply want to set an example that even now dance gives joy, and that all dancers worldwide are a big family in dance.

Best wishes,
Danza Mundial e.V.
