Dance For The Camera - Retrospective Screening

  • The Rose Theatre, Studio
  • Sat 11 Jun
  • Presented as part of FRAME The London Dance Film Festival

Between 1993 and 2003, ACE and BBC commissioned and co-produced 52 short dance films, broadcast over 7 series. Netherlands channel nps were co-producers on series 5 and 7. Choreographers, directors and composers/sound designers worked collaboratively with independent production companies to make original dance works specifically for television. Each film was unique and edgy, revolutionising how dance was portrayed on screen. Broadcast on BBC2, they were well-funded and many won international awards.

We are screening a selection of the most iconic and thought-provoking.
