A Screening of BEFORE: A Concert Film
A screening of the documentary by JD Urban, followed by a Q&A with Francesca Avani and many of the dancers involved.
On June 9, 2021, dancers from the Bridge Street Belly Dance line-up gathered at the theatre for the first time in two years for a multi-day collaborative performance residency culminating in a live show dedicated to dancers, creators, and everyone else who both lost and found themselves in the isolation of the pandemic. Their mission: to create a space to reconnect with the power of empathy and community, and to share the process (and the emotions) of creation with audiences during a time when we need art and each other more than ever. Their June 12 performance, and the residency leading up to and following it, have now been transformed into an concert film by JD Urban called Before, which captures a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the creative process, the joy of re-connection as the pandemic winds down, and the power of creating art during the most uncertain of times.
