Jengo’s Playhouse: The Film is the Dance – Workshop with Mitchell Rose

April 20 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


Mitchell is professor of dance-film and on Saturday morning he will give a talk entitled “The Film is the Dance.”

For people who’ve spent most of their lives envisioning dance on stage, it’s natural to think of dance-film as beautifully recorded choreography. One envisions wide shots of whole bodies that stay the same size, in the same space, in linear time. Like on stage.

There are more possibilities.

Dance-film is film and it requires film thinking. So to step into this different world, it’s important to loosen attachments to long-developed thinking patterns, and see with new eyes.
