No matter what factors are out in the world we can always make, share, and connect using the digital space. This is NOT the only way to enjoy dance but this is a way to bring people together. kNOwBOX dance Short Series (NBSS) is a digital dance ‘short series’ that will premiere on NB social media accounts to promote artmaking and artist connection via the digital space.
kNOwBOX dance seeks to curate a festival of 30 to 60 second dance shorts that challenge the possibilities of what dance can look like in video form. For our first year we wanted to create a theme that could connect with people world wide. This year's theme is CONNECTION.
This short series seeks exciting dance films that explore;
1. Innovative approach to framing dance in a 1x1 square frame
2. Challenge possibilities of what dance can look like in video form within 30 to 60 seconds
3. Create a relationship between sight, sound, and movement to connect us on a deeper level.
