Workshop and Student Showing

Saturday, April 18, 9:30 am-12:00 pm: Live Performance and Video Technology Workshop with Art Bridgman and Myrna Packer. There is limited space in this hands-on workshop, so apply to William Moulton, It is open to student dancers or interested student media and film artists.

This workshop examines the relationship of video and live performance from a choreographic point of view. We will explore how video technology can become an integral part of the performance and the creative process; how it can offer a vital layering element in choreographic composition; and how it can add depth to the realization of the choreographic intent. We will experiment with several live camera angles, pre-recorded video, and some live processing, with emphasis on the interaction between the live performance and the video projections. 

Saturday, April 18, 1:00 pm: Showing of Student Multi-Media Works-In-Progress.  This will be an opportunity to share and discuss with Art Bridgman and Myrna Packer these new works and to have a larger discussion of new directions in the field.  There is a limited space in this workshop, so apply to Jamie Jewett,  It is open to students who are dancers or interested student media and film artists who are working on creative work in this area.
