The mobile phone is so much more than a mere means to communicate. It’s a multimedia tool that has become an integral part of everyday life. The artistic possibilities of the device however are yet to be fully explored.
During the three-day Mobile Choreography workshop, led by Zeynep Gündüz and Keez Duyves, participants investigate the possibilities of the smartphone as choreographical tool for making a dancefilm. With a special focus on ‘multi-perspective imagery’: instead of using a single camera, multiple smartphones will record simultaneously – adding various points of view to reality. Participants will take on the role of both choreographer, cameraman and dancer.
During a closing session on Sunday 12 March, participants and instructors will present their findings and results.
Mobile Choreography is part of a research supported by Codarts, University of the Arts in Rotterdam and is realised in collaboration with Cinedans LAB.
