Lights Dance Festival, Toronto’s only festival that bridges the worlds of dance and film, comes to NWFF in 2022 for its first in-person Seattle screenings.

Lights Dance Festival 2022: Remnants

Strata of forgotten items discovered in any lost-and-found box present a certain history, be it plastic jewelry from the ‘90s, handwritten notes, or photographs. Each item tells a story of its former owner, while collectively, the mélange of abandoned objects provides a perspective of entangled histories. Such recollection – contact with the past – need not be merely object-based, but also, ephemeral, sensorial, and imaginative.

The magic of moving images such as film is also a vehicle into the past through which we revisit familiar spaces and recontextualize certain events through the lens of time. Inspired by the power of film to reignite remnants of the past, the Lights Dance Festival has curated films from around the globe to meaningfully engage with temporalities, whether they are autobiographical journeys or more conceptual experimentations with digital materials and technologies.
