Dance Video Lab - Short Film Selections from ‘New Work Forum: Screendance’ and ‘Experimental Film Virginia’
In order to explore how dance and body movements are transformed from the scene to the screen, the City Contemporary Dance Company and the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority co-presented the ‘New Works Forum: Screendance’ workshop in July 2015, inviting artists from mainland, Taiwan, Macau, Hong Kong and Singapore to join the two-week Workshop for shooting dance video clips. A selection of video clips from the Workshop, together with the works created by participants of the past editions of ‘Experimental Film Virginia’ in the US will be presented in the programme. Post-screening discussion will be hosted afterwards by curators and artists to share their experience in the exploration of screendance.
