Anniversary Screening of THE DANCER
The 1994 film THE DANCER follows the young and gifted Katja Björner through years of intensive training at the Royal Swedish Ballet School as she develops into an international ballet star. Filmed with an eye toward conveying the physical aspects of dancing — the pain, sweat, and tears, as well as the exquisite beauty — THE DANCER captures the fierce determination and struggle that goes into the desire to dance at the highest level.
“Anyone interested in ballet will want to see The Dancer.”
- Anna Kisselgoff, The New York Times
Screening will be followed by a discussion and Q&A with Katja Björner — who retired from the Royal Swedish Ballet in May 2015 and is now a resident of San Francisco — and special guests.
Tickets will be available starting June 15, 2015.
