Videodance – student projects

A collection of video dance films. The video dance film genre brings together two artistic disciplines that are significantly worlds apart – cinema and dance. The encounter between the two is not straightforward. The dancer’s movement is not a realistic depiction of an image in process and the standard narrative molds of cinema simply do not work. Shape wishes to befit the abstract content and the result is a fresh and different artistic endeavor.

Hosted by Miki Cohen

The films were made by the students of the Department of Film and Television at the Sapir College during a video dance workshop, in collaboration with the workshop dancers of Asher regional council in Geaton.

As we do every year, we will gather to view the year end films made by the diverse groups that were active and creative this year.
The project is in collaboration with Voices in the Negev, the Dean’s Unit for Social Involvement, the Volunteer Association and with the support of Bank Hapoalim (Sderot).
