The Autumn programme of Dance Insights Online continues in November as DX teams ups with Birmingham’s own Flatpack, and screendance aficionado Sima Gonsai, to present three exciting events exploring the art of dance on screen.

SCREENDANCE UNPACKED offers a unique opportunity to engage with some of the best digital work from across the globe, and learn more about the filmmakers and their work.  To top it all off, choreographers and filmmakers can join a Masterclass with Omari Carter of The Motion Dance Collective, exploring the process of making and distributing your own work.

The programme features:

SCREENDANCE SHORTS / Wed 18 Nov / 7pm / via YouTube

An exciting online film screening of eight of the very best and most innovative screendance shorts from across the globe, all with unique approaches to the genre.

SCREENDANCE DECONSTRUCTED with Sima Gonsai / Thurs 19 Nov / 7pm  / via Zoom

Sima will engage in conversation with four filmmakers whose works screened the previous night (Hadi Moussally – Bellydance Vogue, Fabiola Santana & Will Dickie – Canning Town, and Tanin Torabi – The Derive), delving into how they made their films, and the barriers they overcame, offering both insight and inspiration.

SCREENDANCE MASTERCLASS with Omari Carter / Thurs 26 Nov / 12pm  / via Zoom

Omari Carter is the Founder and Director of the award-winning screendance production company The Motion Dance Collective. Omari will lead a three hour workshop designed for choreographers and filmmakers who have an interest in screendance but little or no experience making it. The workshop will be split into two parts exploring pre-production & production and post-production & distribution.
