While we are looking forward to Screen.dance Festival in March 2022, we are delighted to announce that Screen.dance has been invited to curate three programmes as part of two festivals at home and away this autumn.
Firstly, away at the 19th annual Festival Quartiers Danses, Montreal 8-19 September 2021 in line with our ongoing partnership with this leading Quebec festival.
Secondly, at home as part of the 17th annual DanceLive 2021 Festival 14-31 October 2021 in close collaboration with our major partner Citymoves Dance Agency SCIO, Aberdeen.
What are the three curated programmes for these two festivals? Here are the first two, to be presented in Montreal first, before their homecoming to Aberdeen:
A retrospective commemorating one of the Scottish pioneers of screen dance, also one of the founders of Screen.dance Festival Simon Fildes (1962-2021).
Movement – a collective moving image homage to the contemporary dance diva Margaret Morris (1891–1980) featuring works by Scottish and international contemporary visual artists and filmmakers.
Apart from these two programmes which we will tour to Montreal 8-19 September 2021, Screen.dance will curate and present a third, open call programme of Scottish screen dance works to be unveiled onsite in Aberdeen and worldwide online as part of the 17th annual DanceLive Festival 14–17 October 2021 and on demand until 31 October 2021.
We are now inviting submissions of new and recent Scottish screen dance works for our third open call programme through our FilmFreeway platform 29 June – 29 August 2021.
