Dance and film,- two genres that at first glance could not be more different. Dance in its immanent fleetingness meets film with its ever increasing independence from the material. Both develop their own creative scope, but also use each other’s creative methods. They meet most directly in dance documentation, in video dance and on the media-designed stage. The internet as a global text and image repository offers a new background for dance knowledge and dance creations at the same time.



In six individual lessons, the seminar explores the contact surfaces between dance and film and takes a look at the mutual influences in formal working methods and format developments. Learning to see dance is also a question of media competence in view of the increasingly media-mediated ways of reception.
