Dance/Video/Improvisation - A two-day workshop

Submission of work for screening event - Dance/Video/Improvisation

Unexpected Encounters - Dance/Video/Improvisation
Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th June 2010, Bristol

A two-day workshop for those interested in exploring the creative interface between improvised dance & video dance practice lead by Kirstie Simson and Katrina McPherson.

The nature of improvisation is process, on-going investigation and the practice of giving. The workshop will look at ways in which improvisation can be used to generate video dance material - that is, work that will be experienced on-screen, and explore how camera techniques can capture the characteristics of improvised dance performance - spontaneity, energy, presence and connection to the audience.

Places are limited, so we are inviting people to apply for spaces. For more information follow the link below.
