During the Screen Dance Workshop, you’ll explore the the possibilities offered by the camera, trying to capture the characteristics of movement: energy, dynamic presence, feeling and connection with the audience.

Drama Teatro, viale Buon Pastore 57, Modena, Italy

When: 5th – 9th December 2018

Deadline for applications: 30th November

What is the difference between what we perceive on film and what we comprehend in live performance? Can we capture the feeling of the movement? Can we get closer to experiencing what the performer feels, rather than merely documenting it? Can the camera be a performer within the dance itself? we will investigate the kinaesthetic challenge of filming movement with a technology based on a series of photographic stills. We will do this by reflecting on the work of other international artists and questioning our own practice. There will be the opportunity to edit the results of our task based exercises into short dance films that can be shared with our peers. The workshop is open to dance-makers, performers, filmmakers, and all artists interested in deepening their research into screendance, whether they are professional or not. To participate in the workshop it will be necessary to bring any type of camera (from smartphone to professional camera) and a laptop with a program for editing, from the simplest (Movie Maker/ iMovie) to more complex (Final Cut/Premiere).
