Closing Cinedans 2018

March 22, 2018

Cinedans 2018, the international film festival for dance film, closed its doors on Sunday. The 15th edition took place from 14 to 18 March in EYE. Dancers, filmmakers and visitors were very enthusiastic about the quality and diversity of the programme.

Martine Dekker (director Cinedans): “I am exceptionally happy about the big diversity of the dance films and dance on film that we presented this year. This edition of the festival confirms, again, that dance film is a vital art form with a contemporary voice: physical, artistic, dynamic and, at the same time, poetic. An art form that attracts a variety of creators and visitors.”

The next edition of Cinedans will be taking place 8, 9 & 10 March 2019.

Cinedans and IDFA in Kriterion present a screening of the documentary film La Chana on Sunday 22 January, as part of the Dutch Flamenco Biennial.

In the 1960s and 1970s, Antonia Santiago Amador, alias “La Chana,” was a hugely popular flamenco dancer – until she suddenly vanished from the public eye, at the height of her career. Director Lucija Stojevic made a documentary about La Chana which won the audience award at IDFA’s last edition. The director will be present for a Q&A after the screening.

WORKSHOP INTERFACING AS PERFORMANCE @ Cinedans 2016

March 2, 2016

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.

World Premiere: De Wolf Danst!

January 5, 2018

Het Mediafonds, NTR, Cinedans and het Nederlands Filmfonds initiated the interdisciplinary dance film project De Wolf Danst!: A combination of an independent dance film and an artistically inspiring documentary. The four selected projects will be festively premiered during Cinedans, including voguing performances by House of Vineyard.

De Wolf Danst! will premiere simultaneously in three cinemas in EYE on March 18.

Selected projects include:

Flight 
Director: Wiam Al-Zabari
Choreographer: Krisztina de Châtel

In the past, editor Wiam Al-Zabari and choreographer Krisztina de Châtel both had to escape from their country of origin. With Vlucht (Flight) they create empathy for how it feels to have to leave your country behind. A group of dancers flees from a typically Dutch village and escapes through woods and dunes to the sea. Nature turns out to be an unpredictable adversary in their search for freedom and safety.

Dance or Die
Director: Roozbeh Kaboly

Young Syrian dancer Ahmad Joudeh experienced his hometown Damascus not merely as a war-torn city, but as a stage. To show the tragic state of his country he danced on piles of rubble. When the chance came, Joudeh fled his country of birth. The dancer has now lived in the Netherlands for one and a half years, studying at the National Ballet Academy. He performs on national and international stages. Yet still he struggles with his new life. He misses his family, who remains in Syria. The pressure to make it here is very high. Which price does Ahmad pay for his newfound freedom?

 

Otherland
Director: Jan Pieter Tuinstra
Choreographer: Keren Levi

A young Vogue dancer performs for the first time at a Voodoo Carnival Ball. An important dance battle where he has to prove himself to be accepted by his peers. He remembers his youth on Sint Maarten and the changes he has been through since then. The freedom that he longed for seems to be at arms reach. A story based on the biographical story of Elvin Elejandro Locadia.

Mother’s Balls
Regisseur: Catherine van Campen

Amber Vineyard grew up in a strict American family. Her particular creative expressions were looked upon with ire. When she moved to the Netherlands with her mother at fifteen, she found her freedom of expression within the walls of the ballroom culture. With ‘House of Vineyard’, she created the Netherlands’ first ballroom ‘house’, a haven for those seeking the same kind of freedom. With their extravagant performances, her ‘kids’ embraces and celebrates the LGBTQI+ movement, now placing the practices of voguing and the phenomenon of the ballroom on an international stage.

April 20, 2017

We proudly announce the workshop Auditioning on Camera, by Henny Jurriëns Stichting in cooperation with Cinedans LAB: Saturday 15 & Sunday 16 July in Amsterdam.

For a first round of auditions, dancers are increasingly expected to present themselves through a short videoclip. With today’s smartphones everyone has a camera at their disposal. But how do you showcase your talent in an insightful and honest way? How do you display yourself and your talent when you’re not there? And how do you ensure that the videoclip’s quality is sound? In this workshop you’ll work under the guidance of choreographer Johan Greben and filmmaker Leo van Emden, both former dancers, on your very own audition tape as you’ll explore both theory and practical assignments.

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:

Jan Fabre is known to be one of the most innovative and diverse artists of his generation. Over the past 30 years, he established himself as a writer, director, choreographer and visual artist. His work is often controversial. Phil Griffin was one of the first male dancers in Fabre’s dance company Troubleyn. After his career as a dancer, he built a successful career as creative director and photographer. He worked together with Prince, Amy Winehouse, Rihanna and John Bon Jovi. In 2015, Griffin returned to Troubleyn as artist in residence. With just one single camera, he followed the intense creation of one of the most radical contemporary theatre projects: Fabre’s Mount Olympus: To glorify the cult of tragedy – a 24-hour theater marathon with 27 actors on stage.

The documentary Surrender follows Fabre, alone in his studio and at practice with his dancers. Going by Fabre’s artistic vision as artist, playwright and tutor, the movie offers a serene and intimate view of the human body.

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.
