led by Dianne Reid
with Melinda Smith

This workshop draws on visual, tactile and text-based scores to develop improvisational scores and choreographic materials. Participants will also experiment with the notion of ‘active witnessing’—of moving through the action as audience/viewer, in duet with the dancer.

In this way participants are introduced to the notion of the duet of dance video: the relationship of the moving camera and the moving body, looking at the interaction between cinematographer and dancer and how this creates new choreography in a screen context. Participants are encouraged to bring their own video cameras or smartphones.
