Hardly any genre is as ephemeral as dance. Like the body of the dancer it is not made for eternity. Film freezes dance in time. But conserving dance is not the only rationale behind the genre of the dance film, which encompasses films as different as the classic Hollywood dance films of the 40s and 50s, the disco movies of the 80s, Bollywood Films, biopics about the life of dancers and films made by choreographers. Cinema Akil, Sima Dance Company and the Goethe-Institute invite you to a weeklong of dance films.
