The Barnard College Department of Dance and the Movement Lab will present Moving Body–Moving Image: Aging & Othering, A Biennale Dance on Screen Festival, conceived and curated by Gabri Christa, online on Saturday, April 4th, starting at 12:00 pm.

This festival is free and open to the public.

The MOVING BODY – MOVING IMAGE Festival, which focuses on social themes in screendance (also called dance film or dance for camera), made its sold-out debut in 2018. This year, it takes on Aging & Othering – a subject made even more relevant as the raging COVID-19 epidemic puts older members of the global population at heightened risk.

The main festival program features two 45-minute screenings of shorts films, followed by two interactive panel discussions, at 4:00 pm and 5:00 pm. The panelists include Karen Williams, Deborah Jowitt, Susanna Sloat, and Anna Sang Park. Among other festival programs are Virtual Reality projects, installations, and additional films, all available on-demand throughout the day. All films will be available for viewing until 12:00 pm on Sunday, April 5.
