The Dance For The Camera Symposium will be an historic meeting
of some of the most influential dance/film and video makers, curators
and theorists of the 20th Century.
The purpose of the symposium is to generate dialog on the
history and theory of dance for the camera as well as to provide an
opportunity for scholars and artists to share their research and work
in a public forum. This symposium will be of interest to practitioners
and scholars of dance for the camera as well as choreographers and
video/film makers, who are new to this art form. Special invited
guest speakers (listed below, subject to change) will participate in
roundtable discussions and present individual lectures. The symposium
will include a curated screening of selected Dance Film and Video Work
from around the world and a two day hands-on workshop
(Saturday/Sunday) led by Douglas Rosenberg.
This symposium will help to codify a living history of Dance
for the Camera by, in part, bringing together some of the seminal
artists of the genre with contemporary practitioners, curators and
theorists and creating a document of the history of this important art
