CHOREOGRAPHIC CAPTURES - Expanded Choreography
The CHOREOGRAPHIC CAPTURES competition led to the development of a new artistic format. CHOREOGRAPHIC CAPTURES, 60-second filmic miniatures, experiment with the unlimited possibilities of film and choreography and establish a new genre beyond the classic dance video. Animation, stop-motion, video editing and compositing meld with choreographic strategies. Cineastic-media confrontations with new choreographic approaches result from the combination of film, art, video and choreography; they irritate the audience's view of film and choreography as art forms and open its eyes for a choreography of images.
In the sense of an "Expanded Choreography", CHOREOGRAPHIC CAPTURES shall be more and more present in the context of the fine arts.
