Dance film screenings. A day of films featuring our festival artists is the title of the dance film programme that this year too will take place during the 17th International Festival of Contemporary Dance of La Biennale di Venezia in a one day of non-stop screening on Sunday July 23rd. From 11.30am to 9.30pm at Teatro Piccolo Arsenale a selection of boundaryless movies by and with the choreographers of La Biennale Danza: Andrea Peña, Luna Cenere, Botis Seva, Oona Doherty, Lucy Guerin, Pontus Lidberg, Tao Dance Theater, Michael Keegan-Dolan, and of two exceptional artists such as Sue Davies and Gisèle Vienne.

Writes McGregor: “Our dance film programme has had a steadily committed audience from its inception, and we would like to continue this strand of work in 2023. In Biennale Danza 23 we will profile film work from the festival artists, work curated by them and major releases from established makers, as well as raw experimental visions. This season we will also present premieres of work by multi-generational artists including the autobiographical film by UK septuagenarian choreographer Sue Davies in collaboration with David Hinton and Hugo Glendinning”.
