IN FOCUS Film Series is a series of curated original dance films by San Diego cinematographers to be debuted exclusively in The Virtual Box! These will not be re-broadcasts of performances, captured by a few static cameras in a theater, they will be ballet art film productions, all innovatively and cinematically filmed.

Films premiere in The Virtual Box on Friday, September 25th, and October 2nd and 9th, 2020, at 5 p.m. PST and will be available for 48 hours, only in The Virtual Box!

We are proud to launch our IN FOCUS Film Series, a series of original dance films curated by San Diego cinematographers and streamed from our online theater, The Virtual Box. We have collaborated with local filmmakers to create original and visually striking art films that lend fresh perspectives to contemporary ballet and grant new access to performance art during this time of quarantining and social distancing.

The program for IN FOCUS includes four ballets handpicked to reintroduce audiences to our company’s bold and innovative dancemakers. The first film in the series is “The Long Goodbye” with choreography by Kevin Jenkins and cinematography by Justin Flores and Israel Palacio. “The Long Goodbye” premiered on September 18th and was ONLY available to Virtual Subscribers. Next in the series is Carly Topazio’s “CrackerJack” (September 25th) with cinematography by Gina and Kyle Sorensen. “First, You” debuts on October 2nd, and is a ballet choreographed and filmed by Carly Topazio. Finally, the series culminates with Bethany Green’s “Epiphany, If You Will” (October 9th), filmed by Brandon Lazo and Caleb Gonz.

While individual tickets can be purchased, Virtual Subscribers can view the films for free and for longer too.
