Eloy Barragán invites everyone to participate in a dialogue on the relationship between dance and technology. This conversation has thrilled dancers, photographers, filmmakers, and artists since the beginning of photography and film. More than ever, artists are interested in screendance—an art that not only captures the movement created by the choreographer and dancer but the dance itself and the camera, highlighting the transforming art of editing. Exploring the relationship between camera and subject, director and dancer, and director and editor in addition to the transient existence of dance and permanent nature of film; bringing together images of the moving body with technology embraces the investigation of the magical hybrid art form, ScreenDance, also known as video-dance and dance for the camera.
