Dance and visual cultures
In this workshop we explore through practice and lecture different territories of dance and how dance is represented within different media, mostly linked to new technologies. We experiment and study how dance is closely collaborating with what we can call "visual cultures" and build an ephemeral visible community and a collection of material including films, photos, texts, which we will communicate via social media. We will communicate simultaneously as we will research and create.
This workshop is addressed to people interested in media, in filming and building images.
Participants must come with their tools (phones, camera etc).
