Delve into the world of unconventional storytelling at Screendance 2: "What's the Story" | 2023 SFDFF. This selection of five experimental shorts takes viewers on a journey through dream-like realms and real-life situations, offering fresh insights into our shared world and endless possibilities. From the surreal to the mundane, these films use the power of dance to illuminate the artistic process, mental health struggles, and moments of interconnected joy. The program begins at 1:30 pm, with the house opening at 1:00 pm. The runtime for this captivating experience is 62 minutes. Tickets can be purchased at the door for an additional $1 per ticket. Among the featured shorts is "Just Start," a collaboration between io Ermoli and Callee Egan that explores the creative journey of two young dance filmmakers. "Just Short of Reality," directed by Matt Alfano and Chad McFadden, takes a surreal approach to depict the serendipities of everyday life through dance. Kate Harpootlian's "Anyone Who Knows" delves into isolation and grief in the aftermath of a relationship's end. "Kill the Minotaur," choreographed by Alejandro Moya, portrays the frustrations and absurdities of everyday life, while "Dreams in the Cubicle" by Xinrui Zhu reminds us to find joy in small moments amidst the mechanized world of the office. Co-presented by ODC, this event supports future seasons and digital programs. Your ticket purchase and/or donation are crucial in supporting SFDFF and its mission to present and support artists whose works enrich us all.
