Screendance: A Choreographic Tool and a Hybrid Dance Form
by Matthews, Nicole, M.F.A., Mills College, 2018, 21; 10817014
Abstract (Summary)

In an age where dance can instantly be viewed online and then just as quickly be forgotten, what is it about certain videos that resonate with us after viewing them?  Is it possible to retain the integrity and intent of the choreographer’s vision on film, especially with instances when it was originally intended to be performed on a stage in front of a live audience? The still evolving art of screendance brings together two different art practices and creates a hybrid art form, sharing a vision with audiences that is unique and can resonate deeply with the viewer. Unraveling the mystery of how it affects us is not easy to answer, but there are proven strategies and theories behind why certain decisions work that can lead artists towards more effective choices.
