Arranging Movement in Film

Workshop on Film-Choreography

16.-18. October 2020, EDEN*****, Berlin

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 learn more about what I refer to as film-choreographic arrangements.

The workshop is divided in four sessions, each accompanied by a selection of films and texts. 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.
