Dancing with Frames Workshop
Presented as a part of Dance (Lens)
Dancing with Frames introduces dance artists and filmmakers to the genre of screendance, and the basic principles that differentiate it from live performance. Incorporating creative screendance exercises, basic theory, screenings and discussion, the workshop looks at how dance and movement can be framed for camera and how formal film conventions such as shot types and point of view can be used and/or subverted for screendance purposes. Working without cameras, artists will experiment with picture frames and improvisational tasks to swiftly gain an understanding of foundational screendance approaches. Led by screendance artist and Dance (lens) curator Siobhan Murphy.
