Master Classes in Screendance with Katrina Mc Pherson and Simon Fildes - 09,13,14 & 21 Nov
These intensive courses are open for those interested in exploring the creative interface between improvised dance & video dance practice. Each session starts with exercises to awaken the body, and then proceeds to focused practical sessions on in-camera editing facilitated by Katrina or Simon, looking at different issues for dancing and filming, using improvisation as the primary creative method. They will also explore the ways in which improvisation can be used to generate video dance material and how camera techniques can capture certain characteristics of dance performances: spontaneity, energy, presence, how it connects to an audience. Participants are expected to have some experience of filming.
