Tanzfest Basel invites you to a three-part dance film evening with guests: The Basel choreographer Tabea Martin gives us an insight into her work in the film Portrait Choreographers at Work! by Michelle Ettlin and is available for a discussion with Mona De Weerdt and the film director in a Q&A afterwards. This will be followed by the short film zwei zu zwei - also filmed by Michelle Ettlin - and a Q&A with the dancers Anjali and Sumitra Keshava. In the third part of the evening, we will be showing six dance short films from Switzerland, Germany and the Netherlands in collaboration with Tanzfest and Dance on Screen with new perspectives on dance between fashion, circus and rave: Shorts – Bulky to Plain

As part of the Tanzfest Basel.

Duration: 120 minutes
