... is an interactive platform for all who want to share their passion for choreography and film with an international community! It is meant to give this art form space for artistic input, exchange, networking and presentation, and to advance the interaction between choreography and media art.
CHOREOGRAPHIC CAPTURES was initiated under the motto "Art for those who didn't ask for it" by JOINT ADVENTURES (with support from the German Federal Cultural Foundation). The goal is as simple as it is ambitious: to use unconventional means to increase people's awareness of the art forms of film, dance and choreography, to question present typs of reception, and to explore new aesthetics.
CHOREOGRAPHIC CAPTURES are a films in a 60 second format. They are the main part of the International CHOREOGRAPHIC CAPTURES Competition and operate choreographically with the film medium. From a new combination of film, art, video and choreography new choreographic approaches can result.
The choreographic short films surprise their audience at different locations. The winning films are presented all year at our partner cinemas in Germany and Switzerland between the film ads. With our screening partners' help, a DVD loop containing selected competition films is presented at festivals, events and venues throughout Germany and Europe.
