Class Description

In 2007, the boundaries of my work blurred when chameckilerner (my artistic duo with collaborator Rosane Chamecki) displaced its choreographic work from the stage to the screen. Confronting the work in a new medium generated a new cycle of investigations as part of my exploration of choreography, movement, and the body as a map of oneself. Moving Bodies in Frame is a result of this journey.

Moving Bodies in Frame focuses on "why and how" to convey a choreographic idea into a filmic practice, and how the encounter between moving images and moving bodies can expand the development of a choreographic language beyond live performance. This vital query relies on these fundamental questions: How are you positioning your work in relation to these two fields — historically, aesthetically, conceptually? Is there a broad and thorough blending of concepts, philosophy, process, and tools?

This workshop is a mix of analytical and production workshop, introducing participants to the history of video/experimental film, moving to contemporary videos and installations, and finally, addressing the opportunities offered by the new platforms available in this moment in time.

Participants will have a series of hands-on exercises and assignments suggested every week, individually and/or in groups. These exercises explore concepts of framing, camera movement, planes, deconstruction of space and time, the relationship between camera movement and body movement, special effects, post-production, installation, etc.

The class welcomes choreographers, performers, filmmakers, photographers, cinematographers, media artists, or anyone interested in this process. Camera will not be necessary; all assignments can be done with participant's phones.
