Sans Souci Festival of Dance Cinema
Sans Souci Festival of Dance Cinema has exhibited over 550 films from 17 countries across 5 continents-- often including artists from Boulder County. In honor of our 15th Anniversary, we are adding something special to our screenings at the Boe. This year we received some truly exceptional documentary submissions, and so decided to create a project around them: 5 doc-centric screenings, and Q&A sessions with the filmmakers who made them.

Grugg and Yvonne: an Unlikely Couple
Sept 30 & Oct 3
Sans Souci returns to the Boe for its 15th Anniversary Season! This program will feature our first full-length documentary: "Feelings Are Facts: The Life of Yvonne Rainer" by Jack Walsh (a Colorado premier). Rainer revolutionized modern dance in the 60s, created seminal feminist films in the 70s, and, now in her 80s, continues to push boundaries. This screening will open with one artistic short.
 
Silence, Swarms, and Swimming: a Sans Souci Screening
Oct 21 & 24
Sans Souci returns to the Boe for its 15th Anniversary Season! This program on will include "The Art of Silence" by Signe Roderick, which is about the history of Mime and includes exclusive performances from the Royal Danish Ballet. These evenings will also include "Black Stains" by Tiffany Rhynard, which chronicles the experience of black male dancers with discrimination and prejudice in modern dance culture. These two films will share a program with 6-8 other artistic shorts. 
 
In Splendid Threads and Bodies: 3 very different films
Nov 5
Sans Souci returns to the Boe for its 15th Anniversary Season! This program features the world premiere of "In Splendid Unison," a documentary (directed by Xavier Hirissou) of a love story navigating the intimate nexus of art and life as former Boulderites, now expats living in the south of France, choreographer Nancy Spanier and husband muse Paul Oertel recall 46 years of their artistic and personal journey together, while viewing footage of their work and reflecting on the continuing prospects of their ever evolving artistry. This documentary will share a program with two other artistic shorts.
