2022 Spring Festival

SFDFF Stage to Screen

From May 13-15, SFDFF presents Stage To Screen, a live 3-day festival celebrating dance from around the world on the silver screen. From a revealing documentary delving into the cross-cultural history of Irish dance to a stunning modern work by the Cloud Gate Theater of Taiwan reflecting the life cycles of rice, SFDFF’s spring programs cross the globe and back again. Ballet fans will love daring new takes on two classics. In Memphis, go behind the scenes with Collage Dance Collective as artists collaborate across disciplines to create a new Firebird with African roots. And celebrated French choreographer Angelin Preljocaj presents a dynamic new Swan Lake like you’ve never seen before.
