Workshop on Film-Choreography

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 short dance films. By analysing the genesis, processes, and methods used in our examples, we will learn more about what I refer to as film-choreographic compositions.

Each morning we will delve into another topic, and explore what it means to work with cinematic bodies, space and time, as well as discussing compositional aspects when combining dance and film. The aim is to provide conceptual knowledge on the hybrid film format, and to support the participants in the developement and enhancement of their own ideas for dance films.
