INTERNATIONAL SCREENDANCE FESTIVAL

NASHER MUSEUM OF ART, DURHAM

SUNDAY, JULY 5–SUNDAY, JULY 19

What happens when five world-class B-boys consider feminine cultural perspectives through the lens of hip-hop, or when choreographers, dancers—and graffiti artists—protest the demolition of London's Heygate Estate because of gentrification? When 10 dancer-choreographers prowl through the Paris underground, what do they find? And how do you make a dance to a postoperative surgical procedure? These questions are explored in the American Dance Festival's 20th International Screendance Festival, where filmmakers from the U.S., the U.K., Canada and France "are witness to issues of the body, of disability, of ritual and of belonging," according to director and host Douglas Rosenberg. The free screenings of dance films continue over the next three Sundays; among the offerings on this week's program are Amy O'Neal and Kyle Seago's hip-hop symposium Opposing Forces Part 1; Gabriela Tropia, Moreno Solinas and Igor Urzelai's protest film Under the Cobblestones, Élisabeth Desbiens' Dancing in Paris and Nancy Spanier's Post-Op. 2 p.m. Sundays, free, 2001 Campus Drive, Durham, 919-684-5135, www.americandancefestival.org. —Byron Woods
