Movement seems to be the crucial common point between choreography and cinematography. But how can physical and cinematic movements be arranged, composed and crossed with each other to produce a dance-like qualitiy of the film itself?
We will discover the various ways and strategies how to connect dance and film by close-watching selected dance films and a close reading of texts. By analysing the genesis, processes and methods used in our examples we will learn more about what I’m calling film-choreographic arrangements. 
The workshop is devided in four sessions, each accompanied by a selection of films and texts. The aim is to provide historical and conceptional knowledge on the hybrid film format and to support the participants to develop and enhance their own ideas for dance films.
