The University of Utah College of Fine Arts is pleased to announce the creation of an interdisciplinary Graduate Certificate Program in Screendance.
As both a practice and an area of theoretical discourse, Screendance is burgeoning worldwide as evidenced by the proliferation of Screendance festivals, symposia, conferences and publications. Also known as dance for camera, cine dance, and video dance, this hybrid form, which in the past has been found at the margins of practice in the fields of dance and film, is now taking a central place as an independent art form. Through the advocacy of practitioners and scholars worldwide, the field of Screendance is articulating its richly intertwined art-historical roots as a means to understand present dance, film, digital media and art practices and how they intersect in a complex discourse of ideas about the body on screen. The certificate has been designed to meet the growing demand of dancers, choreographers, filmmakers and artists who are seeking a more in-depth experience in exploring the relationship between the moving body and the frame.
The Graduate Certificate in Screendance at the University of Utah is an interdisciplinary collaboration between the Department of Modern Dance and the Department of Film & Media Arts. This program provides professional level production courses with state-of-the-art equipment, movement and theory classes and the option for Certification in Final Cut Pro. The Screendance Certificate requires a two-semester on-site commitment.
dance-tech.net provides movement and new media artists, theorist, thinkers and technologists the possibility of sharing work, ideas and research, generating opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborative projects.
dance-tech.net is a social networking website connecting people concerned about innovation and experimentation on movement arts and collaborative creativity in our contemporary world, its evolving embodied practices knowledge, its stories and histories.
We have developed a digitally networked community that has natured on other collaborative initiatives between local and global actors.
