Workshops and Research

Since 2020 I’m offering regulary workshops on film-choreography and was teaching at two different universities in Berlin, on place as well as online.

My workshop Arranging Movement in Film is designed for a small group of participants (about 10 persons) that allows to incorporate and interweave the interests and knowledge of each single person. It serves as a platform for inspiration and intense exchange and supports the participants to sharpen their own ideas and artistic approach. Find below a more detailed description of the workshop and upcoming dates.

In case of interest either to partcipate or to host a workshop feel free to contact me.

Workshop Description

Movement seems to be the crucial common point between choreography and cinematography. But how can physical and cinematic movements be arranged, composed, and interwoven with each other?

We will discover the various methods and strategies which can be used to connect dance and film through a close and precise study of selected dance films and texts. By analysing the genesis, processes, and methods used in our examples, we will reveal underlying scores, structures and ways of composition.

The workshop is divided in four sessions, each accompanied by a selection of films, texts and small hands-on exercises. The aim is to provide historical and conceptual knowledge on the hybrid film format, and to support the participants in the development and enhancement of their own ideas for dance films.

Sarah Möller in one of the co-directors of the international dance film festival “POOL – MOVEMENT ART FILM Festival Berlin”. She is especially interested in the various ways of interweaving cinematic and physical movement. Additionally, she has been invited as a film programmer, lecturer, and jury member for several international dance film festivals and exhibitions.
Sarah studied media culture at Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, Université Lumière Lyon II and the University of Potsdam.

Die Weiterentwicklung und Vertiefung der Recherche wurde gefördert durch die Beauftragte der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien im Programm NEUSTART KULTUR, DIS-TANZEN des Dachverbands Tanz Deutschland.
