Dance’s Duet with the

Camera: Motion Pictures is a collection of essays written by various

authors on the relationship between live dance and film. Chapters cover a

range of topics that explore dance film, contemporary dance with film on

stage, dance as an ideal medium to be captured by 3D images and videodance as

kin to site-specific choreography. This book explores the ways in which early

practitioners such as Loïe Fuller and Maya Deren began a conversation between

media that has continued to evolve and yet still retains certain unanswered

questions. Methodology for this conversation includes dance historical

approaches as well as mechanical considerations. The camera is a partner, a

disembodied portion of self that looks in order to reflect on, to mirror, or

to presage movement. This conversation includes issues of sexuality, race, and

mixed ability. Bodies and lenses share equal billing.
