CineDans 2019 - Talk on Screedance & Social Engagement

Dance films address issues that relate to society, through the body and movement.
From representation to direct engagement with people and communities in the midst of socio-political relevances, filmmakers bring themselves up to task with translating and disseminating the problems, complications and reflections of interpersonal and world-wide relations.

CineDans invite filmmakers to open up their views and methods of working. For this session, the audience is invited to reflect together on the present ways of how dance films are treating social issues and the impact of those in our surrounding.

SPEAKERS // Tanin Torabi (filmmaker: The Derive) | Dagmar Dachaeur (filmmaker: Competing for Sunlight: Ash)  | Emma Evelein (choreographer/filmmaker Sisters, A flood remains) | Maia Sorensen(filmmaker/choreographer) | Nikita Maheshwary (choreographer/filmmaker)

'Home, Suspended' screening @ IKONO TV

In India during the last five decades, more than 50 million people have been uprooted from their homes due to development-induced displacement. The displaced persons are mostly asset-less rural poor like landless labourers, small farmers, tribals, Dalits and Adivasis. For the sake of national interest and development, these millions bear witness to the destruction of their own lives and livelihoods with bleak hopes of rehabilitation or settlement. This short film captures the unsettling experience of displacement and homelessness transformed into a state of suspension.
