Telling stories through motion pictures.
“Dance, dance, otherwise we are lost.”
— Pina Bausch, Modern Dance Choreographer
Welcome to our Care Package Cinema micro-film festival page. This family friendly and free event celebrates a year of creation with community. For the past year Invertigo Dance Theatre has received prompts from folks ordering a Digital Dance Care Package for a loved one. With their blessing, we are now going to share these incredible dance films with you. Don’t forget to RSVP on our Eventbrite here to stay abreast of our multiple screenings.
In 2020, Invertigo Dance Theatre launched the Digital Dance Care Packages which allowed people to gift a one of a kind dance solo to a loved one. Each one was uniquely made by an Invertigo dancer and was inspired by the prompt given by the sender. Since then we have made over 90 beautiful Digital Dance Care Packages! This micro-film festival series will feature these works, the process, and the sender and artist.
Join us February 18 & 24 or March 3rd & 10th for Care Package Cinema screenings from 7-8pm.
