About the Show

Conceived in 2003 by Michelle Ellsworth and Brandi Mathis, Sans Souci specializes in highly experimental, interdisciplinary dance cinema. Friday and Saturday screenings feature different selections of short films by artists from around the world. Sans Souci is supported by a grant from Boulder County Arts Alliance. These screenings are presented by CU Boulder’s ATLAS Center for Media, Art and Performance, an incubator for the novel and experimental use of technology in music, dance, visual art, theater, film and new media. 

Free and open to the public.
