Virtually everyone working in dance today uses electronic media technology. Envisioning Dance on Film and Video chronicles this 100-year history and gives readers new insight on how dance creatively exploits the art and craft of film and video. In fifty-three essays, choreographers, filmmakers, critics and collaborating artists explore all aspects of the process of rendering a three-dimensional art form in two-dimensional electronic media. Many of these essays are illustrated by ninety-three photographs and a two-hour DVD (40 video excerpts).
A project of UCLA – Center for Intercultural Performance, made possible through The Pew Charitable Trusts (www.wac.ucla.edu/cip).From the Publisher:
Envisioning Dance on Film and Video explores the relation of dance and film in a unique way. Through film clips presented on a DVD, choreographic notes, and photographs, the reader can follow the discussion of each dance, and see how the choreographer developed his/her ideas to suit the filmed media. The book consists of individual essays, mostly written by choreographers or dancers who have worked extensively in video or film. This work will appeal to all students of dance and film.
