I am a digital media artist and work with moving image and sound. I make screen-dance work, documentaries and public projections. My collaborations have involved site-specific, improvised and cross-disciplinary performance and my video work has been screened at international film festivals, in galleries, live performances and on TV.
yip that's the same in south africa - small indie cinemas can be approached. so who does approach the small independant cinemas here? is there an org that does that? surely it would be better to have something behind one to launch this instead of my just going up to just about any small cinema and asking? but i will contact leeds screen in the meantime...best jeannette
how does it work here in the UK? can one insert 2/3 minute dance clips at cinemas before the movies start? we have this initiative in SA at Cinema Nouveau where sometimes if we lucky, and know "someone", we can squeeze in a dance video before the main feature begins. this way mainstream audiences get to experience dance video.
also how can you, or I , or marlon get this TV dance to connect to something in the southern hemisphere, say South Africa. I could think of starting something say in Cape Town and then things get streamed from there? things have to get kickstarted in SA and I am prepared to stick my neck out. Obviously not much is being made in SA but someone has to start? best jeannette

I have been following online the events and co at EMPAC and hopefully will make it there myself soon in person. I can only agree on that dance film screenings should happen more often. Speaking from my own work and feedback I receive from friends, family and critics is that in public screenings the same piece of work is often well received and understood while most video dances lose their fascination online (think youtube). The problem is not only the lower quality that reduces the effects of sound and speed of movements but also the moment of 'live' performance in front of an audience is taken away from the work. The unique specialty of video dance is that it is closely related to live dance and thus its presentation in which it needs the space, the sound echoing of walls and an audience sharing the experience of movements, camerawork and edit. Personally, I am very audience-focused, some of you might know my work that aims on creating all-senses-incorporating interaction with the viewer through live performance and/or video installations in controlled spaces that enhance the experience and interaction.
To return to the initial starting point of this discussion: yes, I hope more video dance events will happen, hopefully more dance places, cinemas and co venues will promote and open their spaces to show this genre of film. Currently, the Edinburgh Festival is happening which offers opportunities for video dance presentations for example.
My aim is to increase the possibilities of showing dance work. Together with curator Alexandra Ross, I set up the traveling exhibition The State of Play that mixes live performance, audience involvement and interactive video dance projection:

I am also involved with the events of Iam-Digital that fuses live performance, video dance and live music. I just put together a 2min docu of the last event in May'08
