DANCE AT THE DRIVE-IN

A unique drive-in experience showcasing the very best dance films from around the world is headed to the Santa Monica College Bundy Campus – East Parking Lot. Each film will make its World, United States and/or Los Angeles premiere. The Drive-In programs are a unique selection of top-ranked dance films of 2021, serving as the emotional grand finale of the monthlong annual Dance Camera West festival.

These films — a medium where energy, vitality, movement, music, cinematography and the passion of choreography come together — were chosen out of the 260 festival entries from over 35 countries internationally. Two different programs will take place on Saturday, January 30, 2021 and Sunday, January 31, 2021, outdoors naturally. Show times are: Program A – Sat at 5:30 p.m. and Sun, Jan. 31 at 8pm. Program B – Saturday, Jan. 30 at 8pm and Sunday, Jan. 31 at 5:30pm.

 THE CIRCADIAN CYCLE

The films range from dance in wide open landscapes to those sheltering in place at home, all reflecting the times we are experiencing with COVID-19. It is a way to experience the outdoors in new ways and from different vantage points. It is a welcome to inside the artist’s experience of confinement.
