Art in motion: current research in screendance

Main Book Collection

Composed of papers originally presented during the International Screendance Conference at the Festival International de Vidéo Danse de Bourgogne, Art in Motion considers the choreography of moving images from a variety of angles, including somatic camera work, aesthetic and gestural analysis, and historical research that delves into cinema’s earliest depictions of dance, as well as perspectives from contemporary screendance artists. The geographic diversity of the contributors, many of whom are translated in English for the first time in this volume, reflects the growing number of screendance scholars and artists around the world, providing valuable insights from France, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Brazil, Hungary, and the United States. Art in Motion adopts a broad definition of screendance that explores movement on-screen and with the camera in many forms, while citing parallels between other artistic movements and practices that raise important questions about the role of screendance in moving image and choreographic cultures today.

Contributors include: Sophie Walon, Tim Glenn, Marion Carrot, Paulina Ruiz Carballido, Claudia Kappenberg, Amprimoz Clotilde, Marisa Hayes, Gabriela Tropia, June Allen, Stephanie Herfeld, Mariann Gaál.
