Frames of Reference with Colleen Coy
A movement and cinematography workshop
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Join Colleen Coy in an introduction to Screendance, a hybrid art form combining movement and cinematography. Participants will explore how improvisational movement can translate to crafting cinematography by practicing a series of movement exercises in the presence of a visual frame. There will be no cameras or recording in this workshop. Throughout the workshop, group members will shift between the roles of Dancer and Framer, playing with the unique somatic and perceptual opportunities these different perspectives create. Compositional guidelines will be provided to shift the relationship with the frame, allowing for a multitude of choreographic and cinematic possibilities.
WHO IS IT FOR?
This workshop is suitable for all levels and abilities. No previous dance experience is necessary, only a willingness to move, explore, and play.
No experience required, age 18+
Tuesday 20 June 2023, 3 – 4.30pm
