Screendance workshop

From initial idea, to conceptualization, to rehearsal/preparation, to shooting, to final editing, this course will take the participants through the different production phases of a short dance film.

The participants will be introduced to specific approaches and techniques of contemporary dance and choreographic thinking with a focus on dance for the camera.

The workshop promotes
– the understanding/practice of the relationship between the body, its surrounding and the camera.
– collaborative team work practice
– research and development of a visual language
– working on visual composition
– video production (concept, preparation, production, post production)
– learning by doing 

For professional dancers and/or artists interested in exploring the moving body,theinteraction between the movementand the camera. The workshop can be adapted to any specificframes, thematics and contexts such as festival, academic, community work.

Photo – things I see

Engaging with the knowledge I have developed from the fields of performance, choreography and visual art, I continually attempt to explore the environment I find myself in and aim at capturing moments of grace and unexpectedness, promoting human interaction with its surroundings.

Visual art projects – 
Research as practice

Promoting knowledge exchange and collaborative process, I create research frames where collective practice and experimentation are at the core of the project.
