Short Dance Films is a touring programme that includes a selection of forty-five short dance films produced in Europe in recent years. It is curated by Núria Font/NU2’s, commissioned by the European Dancehouse Network, a network with the participation of 20 dance houses from 16 countries.
The programme, within the framework of the cooperation project Modul-dance, has been screened in over twenty European cities, illustrating the diverse ways of building a dialogue between dance and the moving image. For the screening in the Museo Reina Sofía, five works have been selected to give a prime example of the expressive, narrative and aesthetic possibilities of the stories told through the body and movement.
Short Dance Films will feature participation from Núria Font, the programme’s curator.
