SIDF Winter Mini Fest
March 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Sunday and Saturday, repeating until March 14, 2021
The 4th Annual Winter Mini-Fest goes virtual and runs for four nights from Seattle’s Erickson Theater. It includes live streamed dance events, dance films and will run over a virtual platform that allows at-home audiences to interact and ask questions of dancers logging in from Israel and Seattle’s Erickson Theater.
The newly-produced dance films enable audiences to travel virtually, playfully thwart visual perception, and imagine worlds beyond our own. It features four celebrated choreographers/dancers: Seattle-based Khambatta Dance Company’s (KDC) and its artistic director Cyrus Khambatta, as well as former Batsheva dancer-turned choreographer, Shahar Binyamini, gallery-based choreographer, Roni Chadash and Palestinian choreographer from Israel, Shaden Abu Elasal –whose work focuses on the arab culture of Nazareth. Together this festival virtually unites elements of their collective dance backgrounds and presents emotionally charged performances over four different evenings with two different programs and two opportunities to chat virtually with the dancers themselves.
