FRAMING MOTION / videodance

Videodance is a complex artistic form that merges dance and cinema in a new ensemble. It is a powerful means of expression for makers who are fascinated with the fusion of different artistic disciplines and want to challenge themselves. How do we develop a videodance idea? How do we move from vision to action? How do we film the motion or dance and compose for the camera? The main objectives of the workshop are exchanges of best practices, working from theory to practice on the triptych body-space-frame, and the development of flexible mechanisms of communication within teamwork. By the end of the workshop, all of the participants will have an overview of the creative production process (pre-production, shooting, post-production). They will enjoy screenings of different genres and techniques, explore the dynamics of the motion behind the cameras, experience non-theatrical shooting with professional dancers, and practice constructive criticism. The workshop is open to dancers, choreographers, directors, camera-operators, photographers, editors, sound designers, video-designers, fine artists, scenographers, costume designers, architects, and anyone who enjoys dance film-making. Throughout the workshop, the participants will work with professional dancers, in collaboration with b12 - festival for contemporary dance and performance art.

Chrysanthi Badeka pursued her M.F.A at Tisch School of the Arts in NYU (New York) after completing her b.a in dance (athens), focusing on choreography for the camera. Since then, she has been working as a freelance choreographer, cinematographer, editor, videodance trainer, and curator. For 10 consecutive years she dedicated herself to the promotion of the art of videodance, co-directing AVDP - International Dance Film Festival in Athens / GR (2010-2020). she is now running MOZ Productions, a Cultural organisation, focusing on her artistic practice and dance film education. As a maker, propelling dance & composition, her transmedia practice merges movement with technology, nature and science, working through different mediums, presenting her works on or off theatrical stage, on cinematic screens, monitors or synthetic environments (Virtual Reality). As an interdisciplinary artist, she has been supported and worked with the Greek Ministry of Culture, the National Opera of Greece, NEON, Onassis Stegi, Compagnia di San Paolo and SIAE (in collaboration with COORPI), State Scholarship Foundation of Greece, NYU, among others. In 2022 she received the BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY AWARD by InShadow Dance Film Festival, for the short film Battle of Fishes. She has been a jury member, and/or curator, for multiple festivals, such as DAN.CIN.FEST (FR), La Danza in 1 minuto (It), IBDF festival (Ro), L'ALTERNATIVA (Sp), OFF EUROPA (Ger), LOIKKA (Fin), and TANZRAUSCHEN festival (Ger).



MOZ focuses on the creation of cultural projects, alongside educational and environmental activities, which promote the development of interdisciplinary thinking and raise social awareness, combining art with technology and nature. Active in areas such as dance, cinema, theatre, photography, videodance, art installations, interactive technologies, multimedia, and underwater filming, team members merge separate areas of activities in an effort to develop their practice based on innovation. It is dedicated to the research and the dialogue between different art forms and disciplines, mirroring the ever-changing contemporary environment. MOZ initiates conditions of gatherings and collaborations between people with diverse interests and gives freedom for experimentation on ideas with artistic, social, and scientific orientation. The core of every project is the active participation of all those interested and the fruitful interaction with each other.
