Austin Dance Festival’s “Dance on Film” Releases Outdoors – Sightlines
Part of the Austin Dance Festival, the organized “Dance on Film” series was scheduled to be presented in a theater in April, along with the rest of the festival.
And while the entire festival has been canceled, organizers have rescued ‘Dance on Film’ and will now perform it on November 6 outdoors, at Pioneer Farms, a living history site in northeastern Australia. Austin.
The hour-long collection of international dance shorts will be projected onto the massive 40-foot screen at Rocket Cinema with remote corporate headquarters in the Moody Meadow. And yes, there are live longhorn cattle in the nearby field.
Dance choreographed and created specifically for cinema is an important segment of the international contemporary dance landscape.
On November 6, doors open at 6 p.m. and 6:15 p.m., pop-up dance performances begin in the 19th-century town plaza of Pioneer Farm, Texas. The film program starts at 7 p.m.
Austin Dance Festival is produced by Kathy Dunn Hamrick Dance Company. Recently, KDH Dance created a socially distant dance piece to be performed in a pop-up style on Lady Bird Lake. However, the city halted production before this happened. Read about how the shows went anyway.
