www.athensvideodanceproject.grA 3-day-intensive videodance workshop for fine artists, filmmakers and dancers with Chrysanthi Badeka (freelance performer, choreographer & video-designer).
Videodance by nature is a complex art form. A hybrid that has been developed and become autonomous, offering a boundless field of research and creation for the experimenters, who are mesmerised by the fusion of the arts. A transmedia expressive tool that merges independent artistic events in a totality. The body, the space, the light, the sound, the colour, the costume, the objects and each visual environment are incorporated in a cinematic footprint.
Basic objectives of the workshop will be the familiarity of the participants with the art of videodance, the development of a common code between the artists of the different artistic fields, the experiential exchange of practical knowledge and tools, the improvisation on the triptych body-space-frame, the instant composition of diverse elements, the flexible creative thinking and interaction within the group and finally the fast-speed production of artistic work based on the collaborative and horizontal interaction.
