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?

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?
