International Collaborative DANCE FILM Unit
Practice as research through a historical, personal, and international lens.
The Journey Dance Unit has dancers exploring the idea of journeys through three different lenses: a dancer from the past, their personal dance/life journey, and through connecting with a dancer from a different country. Dancers from different schools and different parts of the world will work through the same unit sharing videos and reflections. Each dancer or group of dancers, will create a dance film. The unit itself will go on a journey from location to location with new students adding their dance films to the collection.
I am hoping to share this unit with thirteen (or more) other groups of dancers around the world. The goal is to create a live dance performance inspired by the explorations of each group and use their dance films as projections. The live dance performance will be in Vancouver, BC in November 2021. Any dancers that are in Vancouver at that time will have the opportunity to be part of the live performance as well. There is also the option to create your own local, live performance.
