video dance concept

“because video dance is screen-based work – and therefore by default associated with television – the expectation is often that everything should be immediately obvious on one viewing and that there is a sense of narrative closure. Video dance offers much greater potential than that: it can create fresh and compelling visual and aural experiences; it can challenge perceptions; it can illuminate concepts; it can stimulate emotion; it can be funny, sad, disturbing, beautiful.”
