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.
