Through dance, we can highlight untold stories, discuss issues and question taboos, amplify voices, codify, document, recognise and celebrate. We can innovate. We can connect. We can protest. When fighting for civil rights and social justice, dance can be a movement in the movements.
This short film, featuring dance practitioners seeks to provide answers to three questions: How do we create socially engaged art? What does it mean to be internationally connected? Can dance change the world?
The films will be shared on this page via Youtube Premiere, going live at 6:00pm for everyone to watch together and comment in the chat as you are watching. The films will then remain online until 8 May.
We would like you to join us in the discussion online using the comments and chat features. We want to hear your thoughts and responses after the film premieres and ahead of the online conference Creating Socially Engaged Art: Can dance change the world? on Tuesday 4 May.
Digital Dance and Discussion is part of Let’s Dance International Frontiers (LDIF), an annual international dance festival produced by Serendipity. The festival features performances, discussions, workshops and a conference exploring dance as a medium for positive change.
