Full price 5,- Euro

- Length 60 min. -

> SOLOCOREOGRAFICO Solo Dance Festival will present a dance film evening for the first time. During the hardest phase of the corona crisis, numerous dance artists worldwide massively flooded social media platforms and websites with dance video content.

Frankfurt dancers have also made a major contribution to this digital survival mode of dance.

Even before the large volume of dance videos hit the internet, the Gallus Theater supported the independent scene in Frankfurt financially in this digital uprising with the “Dance vs Corona” campaign and later with the “Gallus Corona Kulturfonds” and spread the videos on its social media platforms and website.

The “Dance vs Corona” dance film night features some of the best videos that have kept the dance arts alive during this special time. In addition, some dancers will be there themselves on this occasion and give an introduction to the videos and their view of the “Digital Challenge” in times of the pandemic.
