Contents:
Introduction : between dance and film -- Modern movement, dance, and the birth of cinema -- The close-up: micro-choreographies -- Gesture-dance -- Maya Deren : strategies for dancefilm -- Anarchic moves, experimental cinema -- The musical : moving into the dance -- Dancefilm as gestural exchange
Summary: Dancefilm: Choreography and the Moving Image is a rich exploration of the choreographic in cinema. It traces the history of the dancefilm form from some of its earliest manifestations in the silent film era, through the historic avant garde, musicals and music videos to contemporary experimental short dancefilms. In so doing it also traverses some of the most significant collaborations between dancers, choreographers, and filmmakers. Bringing film theory and dance theory into dialogue, the book argues that the combination of dance and film produces cine-choreographic practices that are specific to the dancefilm form. As whole, the book thus presents new models of cinematic movement that are historically informed and interdisciplinary in nature. An extensive companion website provides key video illustrations and links to online resources
