Join See Chicago Dance virtually for the next installment of Screendance Club on December 14th at 5 PM CST. Screendance Club is a radically casual virtual watch party and discussion of short dance films. Unlike a typical talk-back, Screendance Club aims to set the atmosphere for an open conversation and exploration; with artists, filmmakers, and viewers on an equal footing. Screendance Club is a FREE event open to all ages.
This watch party will feature Jasmin Taylor's Trap Moulin Rouge which was commissioned as a part of the City of Chicago's Year of Chicago Dance initiative and originally premiered as a part of the Art On theMart series at the landmark Merchandise Mart. The talkback will moderrateed by Motion/Pictures Dance Project's Talia Koylass!
Trap Moulin Rouge by Jasmin Taylor, in co-production with Motion/Pictures Dance Project, takes audiences to Chicago’s South Side to share and celebrate the vibrant Black culture and dance that emanate from it. Taking sonic and aesthetic inspiration from the 2001 film “Moulin Rouge,” Trap Moulin Rouge combines classical, R&B and jazz melodies with a variety of dance styles with the aim of creating and promoting equity in Chicago through the performing arts.
Jasmin Taylor, née Williams, is an anointed multidisciplinary artist, storyteller and problem solver. She is a native Chicagoan who has trained, worked and lived through the U.S., Asia, Israel and Western Europe. All of Jasmin’s work encourages true vulnerability and interdependence; she works to promote respect, love, and unity within diversity in all communities.
