NAC Premiere

Nordic Screendance is a series of seven short films from each of the five Nordic countries that puts a spotlight on the creativity of dance-film artists from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.  

Totaling 35 minutes in duration, the series illuminates the NAC Kipnes Lantern with a diverse range of dance expressions in a variety of stunning environments, made especially for the camera.  Visible from different viewpoints along the Elgin Street entrance to the NAC, and equipped with a high-performance speaker system installed for the occasion, pedestrians and NAC patrons will be able to enjoy a larger-than-life sensory experience. 

Nordic Screendance is curated by NAC Dance in partnership with Nordberg Movement (Sweden). The series is part of Nordic Bridges, which fosters exchange between the Nordic Regions and Canada. This year-long initiative is led by Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre and is supported by Canadian partners, such as the National Arts Centre.   

The series will run three times each night from September 22 to 25.
