Cinedans WEB is coming to you!

From 25th to 30th March, Cinedans presents a Cinedans WEB special with a selection from the Cinedans FEST ’20 programme!

Due to the guidelines of the Dutch government regarding the prevention of further outbreaks of the Corona virus (Covid-19), Cinedans had to decide last week to cancel Cinedans FEST ’20 in Eye Filmmuseum, Amsterdam.

Cinedans will now present an online selection of beautiful documentaries and exceptional film recordings from the festival program ’20. In addition, we present films made in Cinedans LAB, our educational and talent development branch, and we show the classic Car Men in the context of the Sound & Narrative focus that would have taken place at the festival, under the direction of composer Han Otten.

Finally, we present a Surprise Short from the international selection of ’20 every day.

From 25th to 30th March, stay tuned with our online platform and experience the power of dance films wherever you are!

    What a treat, to be able to watch these ballets at home. Not as festive as the ‘Eye’ performances would have been, but every bit as wonderful.
    I especially enjoyed ‘Clowns’ – after seeing the NDT live production the first time around. Looking forward to the rest of this home fest!

    Thank you very much for these amazing treats during last week. I watched and watched again. Staying inside was not a reason to watch your program but rather the other way around. Your online performances was a reason to stay inside and watch. Good variety and absolutely high quality.
    Really thanks. I enjoyed it a lot! I hope you received also something in return,

    What a treat! I am an absolute novice to this art form and I love it. My friend sent me a link, last night, and I managed to view only two first days. Both of them thrillingly beautiful. I would love to view them again, on my home cinema, as it fully deserves. Hopefully that will be possible any time soon. Wishing you all the best at this challenging time.

    Thanks so much for the initiative. being able to see these baleets in home was a wonderfull expereicne. Unfortunatelly we couldn’t see the entire videos of the great ghosts and clowns . Is there any option to extend the dates a little further? I am from Spain and here we have been confined for almost a month. Unfortunatelly I think we will be in home for a few more weeks. It would be great, also to be able to share this with my friends who are also in home at this moment.
    In ay case, thanks so much for your initiative. Best!
