“Culture at a time like this is going to help you because you're watching other people's stories and you can see how we're all connected. Every single person on this planet is now connected by one thing” says Russell. “Watching this short film, I hope moves you, as it's a beautiful piece of art, it's beautiful music, but it’s also very hopeful. You go into the pain of this character, and what he's coping with, and then he sees himself as a kidand he's like, ‘I can face the world again. I just needed to get in touch with my own feelings and give myself permission to be sad or scared.’ That's what this story is about: trying to control the stuff that goes on your head, and telling yourself this is normal, this is ok. However you feel, there is always a way out.” Russell Tovey
“So much can be communicated via our arts that cannot be in other ways,” says Fabio. “A doctor can go on BBC News and say, ‘you need to look after your mental health at this time’, but that's not going to resonate with people. That's why I hope that this video gets seen by loads of people – this message is so relevant to everybody. There's a real need for art and culture right now.” Fabio D'Andrea
by Mike Wall:"With so many educators moving to online teaching, I thought another way I can help is to start making mixes of typical "flows" of my music choices for playing class...like a virtual accompanist. I have made some updates to the layout of my website, and will make lots of different types of mixes. Educators I spoke with let me know that most online classes are around 60 minutes, so that's what I will focus on for the next couple of months...."
Before film and video, dance used to be “the evanescent art” – choreographies throughout history have disappeared while masterpieces of painting, sculpture, poetry, or theater remain for thousands of years. The widespread use of video has revolutionized the art of dance; its contribution is invaluable.
Dance Day 2020 is celebrated in cooperation with the International Council for Film, Television and Audiovisual Communication (CICT/ICFT), a partner of UNESCO just like CID. The general theme is “Youth-Dance-Video.” Choreographers and dance school directors are encouraged to produce a work executed by dancers under 18, record it on video and send it to be screened at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris.
This short choreographic piece should be inspired by values defended by UNESCO; for example: intercultural and interreligious dialogue; anti-doping; promoting shared history and memory for reconciliation; protect, promote, and transmit heritage; culture of peace, non-violence, and sustainable development; poverty, climate change, natural disasters, and social inequities.
You will find more values, such as equality, democracy, peace, and human values, at the portals of UNESCO and the United Nations. The challenge is how to portray such abstract notions through concerted movement on stage. The most important objective is for your young dancers to understand the importance of one or more of these values and to engage in expressing them.
On Dance Day the attention of the world is directed towards the art of dance. Video serves us immensely as a simple means for recording and disseminating our creative work. This year, dance and video will combine in celebrating the uplifting of humanity towards the noble goals set by its summit organizations.
Alkis Raftis, President of the International Dance Council, CID, UNESCO, Paris

Laurence Louppe, une pensée qui danse
Le Centre national de la danse met en ligne une série de montages sonores qui invitent à " entendre – à travers cet enthousiasme de Laurence Louppe – une pensée sans cesse en mouvement qui s’élance, s’emballe, se rattrape, digresse et nous surprend à chaque instant" (CND).
L'occasion de découvrir les temps de partage avec les danseurs en formation qui ont nourri son ouvrage phare, Poétique de la danse contemporaine.
