Wednesday, 12/08/21, 7:00 PM; Sunday, 12/12/21, 1:00 PM -“Dancing through the Holidays” is Sans Souci’s first time ever extending our season into December, making a little room for some holiday programming! The three films in this lineup, curated by the Sans Souci team, aren’t your typical holiday dance show, but they do include ballet by the Scottish Ballet, tap by Barbara Duffy & Ted Louis Levy, and jazz by twin cities-based company Rhythmically Speaking. Where else can you get some jazzy Radiohead, classic show tunes, and a touch of the Nutcracker all in one show?
The full lineup of films is available here: https://sanssoucifestival.org/ssf-the-boe-2021/.
Sans Souci Festival of Dance Cinema is one of Boulder’s longstanding favorite arts organizations, and we’re so happy to return to one of our most beloved venues, the Boedecker Cinema at Dairy Arts Center for three separate programs this fall — Dancing on the Planet (Oct), Dancing as Ourselves (Nov), and Dancing Through the Holidays (Dec).
Sans Souci Festival of Dance Cinema is a niche film festival where choreography meets cinematography. Based in Boulder, we’ve been collecting an archive for the last 18 years from artists around the world, and screening dance films, documentaries, music videos, and more. With an expansive definition of dance and an appreciation for highly experimental and interdisciplinary forms, this unique festival exposes diverse audiences to a variety of film, video, and performance possibilities. We open an annual call for entries, distributed around the world, with submissions curated by a panel of active dance filmmakers. We facilitate gatherings from educational workshops to public screenings to professional development for artists. While our roots remain proudly in Boulder County (Colorado, USA), our branches reach many locales nationally and internationally, and continue to grow.
