Video dance: This genre emerged as a result of the experimentation between dance and image capture techniques. It dates back to the appearance of video art and the beginnings of cinema and evolved in parallel with these over time. It is not a record of a dance on video, but rather dance and the camera form a symbiotic relationship. In this kind of play, the creation of the choreography typically only exists on film or video.
“Neither the dance nor the method of rendering are in service to each other, but are rather partners or collaborators in the creation of a hybrid form”, says North American producer and theorist Douglas Rosemberg.
