AVDP goes to l’Alternativa (Barcelona) 23rd Nov,2014

  • Published in News
In l’Alternativa Hall Exchanges we are once again showing work from likeminded festivals to give a voice to “filmmaking with a difference” – films that combine enigma, a unique approach and an itch to experiment with an urge to rebel against the norms and make the most of the wealth of different ways of capturing and revealing reality. We are showing two programmes: one from Alternative Film/Video Belgrade and the other from Athens Video Dance Project.

WOMEN IN ACTION - ΓΥΝΑΙΚΕΣ ΕΝ ΔΡΑΣΗ - AVDP 2019

  • Published in News
WOMEN IN ACTION
Το αφιέρωμα WOMEN IN ACTION πραγματοποιείται μέσω  του Επιχειρησιακού Προγράμματος «Μεταρρύθμιση Δημόσιου Τομέα» και συγχρηματοδοτείται από την Ευρωπαϊκή Ένωση (Ευρωπαϊκό Κοινωνικό Ταμείο).

AVDP Team for the 9th edition of AVDP-International Dance Film Festival hosts norm-breaking female icons, who promote dance film choreographic creation as a tool for social transformation. The 23 international films of the special screening event WOMEN IN ACTION, of which 20 are Greek Premieres, focus on the present and the future.  Despite the fact that the film industry is mainly occupied by males, in the videodance spectrum it is exactly the opposite way. In the field of film production, the previously decades-long riotous debates around gender roles and gender equality camps to grant space to female filmmakers, queer voices and transgender artists, who adopt a bold personal perspective to expose greatso-cial issues.
On the other hand, throughout Dance Film History, women have boldly occupied the director’s seat exploring the composition for the camera and interdisciplinary making. From the 1940s when pioneering choreographer - dancer - filmmaker - photographer - poet - film theorist writer and lecturer, Maya Deren led the way of dance film making, to maverick choreographer/ directors of 70’s (like Trisha Brown, Ivone Reiner, Pina Baush), to 90’s (with Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Sasha Waltz) and today’s voices...all of them are WOMEN IN ACTION!


________
Η AVDP Team για την 9η έκδοση του AVDP, φιλοξενεί γυναικείες φιγούρες που σπάνε την κανονικότητα, προωθώντας τη χορογραφική δημιουργία ταινιών χορού ως εργαλείο κοινωνικού μετασχηματισμού. Οι 23 επιλεγμένες ταινίες του αφιερώματος WOMEN IN ACTION, από τις οποίες οι 20 είναι πρώτης προβολής, αφορούν κινηματογραφικές ματιές και προτάσεις του παρόντος και του μέλλοντος.
Παρά το γεγονός ότι η βιομηχανία του κινηματογράφου είναι κυρίως ανδροκρατούμενη, στην περιοχή του videodance παρατηρείται ακριβώς το αντίθετο. Στον χώρο της παραγωγής ταινιών, οι επαναστατικές συζητήσεις των προηγούμενων δεκαετιών γύρω από το θέμα των ρόλων και της
ισότητας των δύο φύλων, έδωσαν όλο και περισσότερο χώρο σε γυναίκες κινηματογραφίστριες, σε queer φωνές και σε transgender καλλιτέχνες, που υιοθετούν μια τολμηρή προσωπική ματιά για να εκθέσουν μεγάλα κοινωνικά ζητήματα. Από την άλλη, στην Ιστορία των Ταινιών Χορού, οι γυναίκες χορογράφοι έχουν δυναμικά καταλάβει τη θέση του σκηνοθέτη εξερευνώντας την σύνθεση χορών για την κάμερα και τη διεπιστημονική δημιουργία. Από τη δεκαετία του 1940, όταν η πρωτοπόρος χορογράφος - χορεύτρια - κινηματογραφίστρια - φωτογράφος - ποιήτρια - θεωριτικός του κινηματογράφου - συγγραφέας και λέκτορας, Maya Deren άνοιξε το δρόμο της δημιουργίας ταινιών χορού, μέχρι τις ανυπότακτες χορογράφους/σκηνοθέτες της δεκαετίας του '70 (Trisha Brown, Yvonne Rainer, Pina Bausch), του '90 (Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker και Sasha Waltz) και τις σημερινές φωνές...όλες τους είναι ΓΥΝΑΙΚΕΣ ΕΝ ΔΡΑΣΗ!




Όλες οι δράσεις του 
WOMEN IN ACTION είναι με ελεύθερη είσοδο. 

Για όλες τις ημέρες του Φεστιβάλ (18, 19, 20 Ιανουαρίου) όλοι οι χώροι της Α.Σ.Κ.Τ. είναι προσβάσιμοι σε ΑμεΑ.

AVDP in Community

AVDP in Community
As AVDP team we consider dance & video as expressive artistic tools that could also be powerful means of exploring and developing social and cultural identity.

By organizing video-dance services and activities (screenings, lectures, workshops, projects) in different neighborhoods, squares & coffee houses, AVDP gives the opportunity to the community to meet the art of videodance,  to participate in and create work that reflects their community, to develop a new language for communication and to encourage greater self esteem and confidence. They get inspired to become social innovators by using their talents towards making an artistic change in their communities. Community stays physically active and have the support of AVDP team along the way.

ACTIONS:

BODIES OF RESILIENCE (Director: Jill Woodward, Choreography: Despina Stamos)
Screening during 4th AVDP festival with free entrance to all the refugees.
In the short documentary, a diverse group of asylum seekers in Greece join with local and New York artists for a performance project. The participants improvise duets and group dances amidst ruins and graffiti in Athens, while we hear them recount painful stories of their pre-flight suffering, harrowing journeys, and reflections on Greek life during the global financial crisis and rising fascism. Physically, they explore the question of how a body can find softness and resiliency when their surrounding environment is harsh. The refugees come from Afghanistan, Albania, Bangladesh, Senegal, Tanzania, and Turkey, and include a Kurdish political prisoner, a sex trafficking victim, and victims of the Taliban. They work with collaborators from Athens and the USA in an annual performance workshop called passTRESpass. This film is a follow-up to the 2011 short documentary passTRESpass, which details the process of recruiting immigrant participants and staging a public performance. bodies of resilience is a filmed performance outside the traditional theatrical setting, but contains intimate elements of real life revealed through audio interviews. The participants provide a soundtrack of folk songs sung in their native languages, and speak in Greek.
