Found Choreography in Tanzrauschen Dance on Screen Festival Wuppertal

December 22, 2015

Sometimes, dance is suddenly there: in the breathtaking grace of a leaping cat, or in a conductor’s hands that seem to be moving for the sheer pleasure of it. The guest curator for Cinedans 2014 was filmmaker Peter Delpeut. Cinedans invited Delpeut to share his vision on dance film, inspiring him to initiate a community project around ‘found choreography’ – found footage modified to a choreography.

In collaboration with Peter Delpeut, Cinedans set up a blog and issued an open invitation to everyone to submit their own found choreography.

Found Choreography is traveling to Germany in the beginning of 2016:

Open Call: De Wolf Danst

December 22, 2015

photo: Son du serpent by Tami Ravid and Feri de Geus

Media Fund, NTR / The Hour of the Wolf, Cinedans and Filmfonds initiate the project De Wolf Danst: a combination of a high quality artistic documentary (40′) and an independent dance film (10′). The Wolf Dances will be broadcasted in The Hour of the Wolf.

Choreographers and filmmakers can apply jointly for a brief and idiosyncratic dance film. The dance film focuses on a current issue in today’s society and should not be based on an existing dance performance. Dance makes a substantial part of the film. The choreographer and the filmmaker have to be working from the first moment together on the dance film project. The choreographer and the filmmaker will also have to work with an experienced composer / sound designer to create an original score. Finally, the choreographer and the filmmaker will cooperate fully with a documentarist to create an independent artistic making off / documentary, which will precede the dance film.

Theater maker Marloeke van der Vlugt will take a practical and physical approach to introduce artists to new technologies!

WORKSHOP INTERFACING AS PERFORMANCE @ Cinedans 2016

March 2, 2016

Date: Saturday 19 March  | Time: 10.30 – 17.00 uur | Place: Clink Hostel | Address: Badhuiskade 3, 1031 KV Amsterdam

Although these days new technology is by no means an unknown in the worlds of dance and theatre, there are obstacles to using them in practice. As a choreographer or director how can you best ensure that using and developing technical tools runs in parallel with the process on the floor? How should you go about making it a fully real and active part of your choreography?

Theater maker Marloeke van der Vlugt will take a practical and physical approach to introduce artists to new technologies. Vann der Vlugt and the workshop participants will look into ways sound and visuals can be influenced live by touch and movement, using tactile interfaces such as conductive fabrics. An explanation will also be given of how easily you can make these interfaces yourself. Marloeke will be using her own work and practical examples as a basis for the workshop, but participants are more than welcome to bring in their own material and research-oriented questions.

Marloeke van der Vlugt is a theatre maker, artist and researcher. She is currently conducting research in the relationships between movement, technology and the bodily experience. Marloeke is currently affiliated as a tutor with the Utrecht University of the Arts (HKU) and as a researcher with HKU Research Centre Performative Processes.

Costs:  € 50,- Students € 30,- Including the program Xtra Antic Meet on Friday March 18,  17.45 – 19.00 hours in cinema 3 in EYE. Marloeke will talk about her inspiration and working process of her new interactive installation in Cinedans CHAIR_JUMP_CHUTE.
