At the intersection of dance, music, fashion, and cinema, comes an ambitious international dance film project. Films.Dance engages more than 150 diverse artists from 52 cities in 25 countries, culminating in 15 short films made over the course of the pandemic. The Soraya and the Wallis teamed up with Chicago’s Joan W. and Irving B. Harris Theater for the project, which is produced by L.A.-based Jacob Jonas The Company. Through non-traditional collaborations across cultures and continents, the series was filmed at locations from Amsterdam, Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, London, Los Angeles, New York, Nigeria, and Spain.
