WORKSHOPS

24.11.16 Refining Performative PresenceGoethe University, Frankfurt, Germany. Masterclass Workshop.

11 & 12.10.14 Choreographing with the LensStudio 303, Montréal, Canada. (Presented by Cinédanse Montréal). 2 day intensive. Taught in French.

The relationship between the moving body, time, space and the lens is a rich and complex one. Through this two day intensive, choreographer/ filmmaker Isabel Rocamora will lead professionals of both the dance and filmmaking fields through a series of practical investigations in the dialogue between the moving body and the lens.

Excercises will include: techniques in observation; the sequence shot versus the edit (working with time and space); capturing the three-dimensionality of moving action; the dialogue between the moving body and the moving camera; basic rules of shooting for editing (the language of film); remaining faithful to movement qualities when we shoot (working with rhythm and change); the integration of theme, choreography and the filmic eye (collaborative methods). It is expected that both dance practitioners and filmmakers will contribute specific creative perceptions that will be mutually enriching. The specialised nature of this workshop is grounded in an understanding of interchangeability: so dance practitioners will engage with the process of choreographing for film as well as filmmaking, and filmmakers will have the opportunity to do some movement work in order to deepen their understanding of choreographing and filmically capturing the moving subject. The principle of collaboration is therefore at the heart of this learning process.

09 & 10.10.14 Choreographing with the LensLa Rotonde Centre Chorégraphique Contemporain de Québec, Canada. (Presented by Cinédanse Montréal). 2 day intensive. Taught in French. (see above for description)

This hands-on workshop offers an in-depth exploration of artist film production. Looking at each stage of production: from concept, through filmic language, technical and directing skills to  presentation, the course will provide the practical tools for the development and completion of  short group single screen moving image works.
