Cinedans FEST Openingsceremonie
Cinedans 2023: Opening
Celebratory opening program of the 19th edition of the Cinedans Festival.
The celebratory opening night of the 19th edition of Cinedans FEST will feature a preview of the three-day Practice & Potential edition, in which young makers, new developments and special documentaries will be showcased.
The program includes exciting short films and excerpts of documentaries, along with the world premiere of the latest film by Iranian dancer, choreographer and filmmaker Tanin Torabi, which focuses on the current struggle of young Iranians to participate in public life bareheaded.
As part of the opening program in cinema 1, the feature film EASY TIGER by choreographer Karel Tuytschaever will be screened at 21.30 in cinema 2. In EASY TIGER, a psychologist is confronted with his own inner world in a session with a client. An intimate portrait of a vulnerable man during a true and inevitable romance.
The evening will be presented by choreographer and performance artist Billy Mullaney. Mullaney's work focuses on representation and spectatorship, and in particular how they represent themselves online or through other filmic mediations. Mullaney graduated from DAS Theatre in Amsterdam and has appeared in his own unparalleled productions Never Never Never Ever Never Never Ever Never Ever Ever EVER Ever EVER Give Up Unless It Gets Too Hard and in The Glory Machine.
Connor Cook's hybrid video game performance At The Function (I Shake My Ass) will enliven the opening night. Connor Cook graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven and recently received the Pierre Keller Award '22 from the Hublot Design Prize, a springboard for talented designers.
From 24 to 26 March, Cinedans once again invites you to Eye with a full programme of the most beautiful, exciting and poetic dance films of the previous year.
