About this Event

Salem State Dance, in conjunction with the Center for Creative and Performing Arts, presents its Second International Dance Film Festival on Thursday, January 26 at 7:30 pm. The films will be shown in the Sophia Gordon Center, 356 Lafayette Street.

Twelve short original dance films will be presented, selected from over 800 submissions. Filmmakers represent China, Mexico, Spain, France, Egypt, Greece, the Netherlands and the United States. The films are a celebration of conversation between body, movement, and camera. The subject matter is as diverse as the countries represented ranging from site-specific works to films that explore overwhelming urbanization, identity, loss and its associated memories and inherited artifacts, our connection with nature and an 82-year-old dancer known as the “Gypsy Fred Astaire.”

The films will also be made available to view online from January 27 through February 28. Tickets for viewing the festival in person or online are $10 general/senior and free for under 18 and students. Tickets can be purchased at www.salemstatetickets.com.
