Dance on Screen:  "The Unseen Sequence" directed by Sumantra Ghosal

Dance on Screen Film Festival

How can the camera expand our experience of dance? In five films, we will watch together as diverse dance traditions are brought to life. Live Q+A’s with filmmakers and choreographers will reframe dance from multiple viewpoints, and bring vibrant choreography from around the world to wherever you may be.

Dance on Screen Film Festival is a special collaboration with Images Cinema. All films are free and open to the public. Tickets go on sale on October 9th.

The Unseen Sequence explores India’s classical dance tradition through one dedicated disciple, Malavika Sarukkai, whose form is rooted in tradition but imbued with a uniquely contemporary sensibility. As an interpreter of Bharatanatyam’s rhythmic and expressive potential, she serves as guide through the film’s investigation of an ancient art that has evolved from temple dance to court entertainment to secular spectacle. Beautifully shot in temples and sacred sites, the film blends interviews, historic footage, and performance to create an consummate overview of Bharatanatyam’s past, present, and future. 69 min.

There will be a post-screening  Q+A with director Sumantra Ghosal and choreographer Malavika Sarukkai on March 14 at 12:15 PM.
