Screenmotion Festival will feature a day programme for all lovers of dance, movement, body, editing, film and video. Will bring together the newest videos, currents and interesting discussions on the state of the screendance and a stimulated and experimental workshop.
About the Workshop
When we look at something, it’s not the same as seeing it. Seeing is always on the edge of discovering, it’s the point at which we find the turn towards (new) understanding. If we dig a little deeper, we can ask all kinds of questions about the act of looking that might change how we connect to the real world around us as well as to the abstract and imaginary.
In this workshop we will practice different ways of seeing via physical activities that connect embodied looking with movement and composition. Working with our bodies, with objects and with cameras (both real and imaginary) we’ll explore an expanded sense of choreography and generate compositions for moving image works. Connecting choreographic composition to visual arts practice we’ll debate and discuss, unravel (and enjoy) new and familiar territories.
About Lucy Cash
Lucy Cash (www.lucycash.com) is an artist and moving-image maker. Her film works have been shown on BBC2 & BBC4 and Ch4 & FilmFour as well as at international festivals and galleries. She works with an expanded sense of choreography and an interest in extending choreographic thinking beyond dance in order to offer more haptic ways of relating to the world around us. In 2009 she received a screendance fellowship from South East Dance from which she developed a collaborative curatorial platform – straybird (www.straybird.org). Straybird has created a series of innovative curations in different contexts including two festivals at Siobhan Davies Studios in 2010 and 2012 (What If… and What Matters) and a mobile curation for Dance Umbrella – Stray Gifts (2013). Lucy regularly mentors other artists, as well as teaching at various institutions (including Roehampton University, Middlesex University, Tate Modern, Falmouth University, Trinity Laban and for Siobhan Davies Dance).
