“At the beginning of the 1980s, when this form that came to be known as “video-dance” appeared, it seemed as if a new era was opening up for dance…. Has a new form of writing emerged from the conjunction of these two artistic forms, image and movement?” (Excerpt from Patricia Kuypers‘ editorial note).

In this dossier, choreographers and directors share their perspectives on the very materials of their art: the perception of time and space, rhythm, structure, memory… What do we transmit through the body, through images? Based on their collaborations and experiments, artists from both disciplines look back at the difficulty of “capturing” dance, at films that dance and the strategies they employ.
