Screendance Club: The Fantasy Series

Event Type
Online Event
Event Description

Artist & Filmmaker Majesty Royale
Conversation Moderated by Kennedy Ward

Majesty Royale is a dancer, performance maker, sound explorer, and ghost occupying liminal spaces. Their work confronts claims of ownership on the body by engaging in radical defiance of how one should be. The “fantasy series” is a collection of experimental video shorts published on social media with original sound designs. These shorts ask, “what is it to recall a dream?” and “what does it mean to witness?”. This window into a fantasia of black queer experience might remind us of what we don’t know about what it means to be alive.

Join See Chicago Dance's latest program, Screendance Club: a radically casual watch-party and discussion of short dance films. Different from a typical talk-back, Screendance Club aims to create an environment of open conversation and exploration--with artists, filmmakers, and viewers on an equal footing. SCD writers curate and facilitate conversations on viewing and interpreting dance on screen.
