Description: Moving nimbly between dance history and film theory, big mainstream movies and small experimental films, this course is an exploration of the choreographic in cinema. We will trace the history of the dance film form from its earliest manifestation in the silent film era, through the historic avant garde, musicals and music videos to contemporary short dance films, showing how the combination of dance and film produces cine-choreographic practices that are specific to the dance film form. This course, which combines theory and practice, invites video and film concentrators, dancers, and dance-makers interested in exploring new frontiers of choreography on film.
