How do we frame stories of moving bodies? Dance on screen is a complex artistic form that combines the arts of dance and cinema into a new ensemble. As a practice it challenges artist who are fascinated by the fusion of different artistic disciplines and curious to develop their artistic tools or improve the techniques of filming the movement. The main objectives of the workshop are the best practices exchange, from theory to practice, within the triptych body-frame-space, and the development of flexible communication mechanisms within the team during the pre-production, shooting and post-production process. At the workshop, participants will enjoy screenings of different genres and techniques, explore dynamic filming in collaboration with professional dancers of b12, be familiar with cinematic equipment and Premiere Pro editing program, and participate in fruitful discussions through reflections and constructive feedback. By using transmedia ways, we will work altogether exploring content, aesthetics, choreography for the camera, non-theatrical shooting, storyboarding, writing and teamwork communication.

some workshops offer group improvisation or partnering. these workshops elements may or may not be possible and the teachers and choreographers will modify their workshops accordingly in line with the health and safety measures required at the time. please stay flexible. thank you!
