Studies Project:  Dance on Camera 

Moderated by Samuel Topiary 
Judson Memorial Church

January 25, 2011


Dance on Camera was a shorts program curated by Movement Research 2010 Artists-in-Residence Anna Azrieli, Laurie Berg, Yve Laris Cohen and Chase Granoff, in collaboration with Dance Films Association Director Deirdre Towers. This event is a part of DFA’s 39th Annual Dance on Camera Festival.


The evening's viewing and discussion grew from an initial grouping of three short films selected from submissions to DFA’s 2011 Dance On Camera Festival. Each film centered around movement in relationship to landscapes, ranging from the natural world to the urban environment. The second part of the evening featured films and videos selected by the curators, responding to issues brought up by themes in the original films, as well as the event's curatorial process.


Samuael Topiary moderated a discussion that engaged all of the films and discourses surrounding the event.
