The fourth in a series of Dance Community Conversations around and about our regional contemporary dance community, this conversation will be centered around the growing phenomenon of dance filmmaking


The Motion State Dance Film Series is the only year-long, traveling short dance film festival in New England devoted to showcasing the diversity of contemporary creative voices exploring the medium of choreography for the camera. By taking the festival “on the road” and into non-traditional film venues, such as art galleries, music halls, performing arts theaters, and university classrooms, the Motion State Dance Film Series seeks to expose the films and filmmakers to new audiences. Every screening is followed by a public Q & A with the curators. All festival artists are invited and encouraged to take part in the conversation.
