Intermedia dance films from Embodied Media Studio merge choreographic forms with cinematic techniques, bringing the emotional presence and kinetic power of dance to the screen.
Choreography made specifically for the camera embraces the potential of film and media technology to transcend the ephemeral nature of dance, creating new perspectives of bodies in motion.
Our projects include hybrid media/dance works that combine live performance of contemporary dance with projected imagery derived from dance. These can be regarded as “dance film in performance” and are developed with the intention of connecting choreography for stage with choreography for camera.
Other projects, conceived as “dance film for the screen,” work with an integrated vocabulary, both filmic and choreographic, to create a standalone screen experience that is independent of the performative experience it is derived from.
