This is an incredible time to be making art with movement and film. Never
before has it been so accessible to create video as well as to share it. I
am SO excited to be part of this swiftly growing art form.
For so long most people have only seen dance filmed from the back of the
theater of a live performance. Recording dance in this way dulls and
deadens the dancing to a depressive state. There is no life left in it. In
contrast, when movement is captured dynamically by a camera that is moving
with them and moving close to them, it brings the dancing alive. While it
may be counterintuitive, there is way of experiencing dance through the
lens that can be even more intimate than seeing it live.
With dance for
camera, we get to bring the dancing out of the theater! I’m constantly
inspired by films that capture dance in the most beautiful of spaces. And
of course, with this digital medium, not only do we take dance out of the
theater, we get to share it across the globe via the internet.
Thank you for supporting my passion. I am incredibly grateful to be alive
at this time using this magnificent medium.
