Bodysurf Scotland in partnership with videodance.org.uk presents:

Opensource:{video-dance} 2007


Bulletin Two

  We would like to invite you to our second symposium at the  
Universal Hall Arts Centre, Findhorn Foundation Community, Scotland  
from 20th – 24th November 2007. Opensource: {Videodance} 2007 is an  
open symposium for artists, academics, curators and producers coming  
together, to share ideas and work, network and debate, and provide a  
valuable platform for current issues in the area of screen dance  
practice to come to the surface.

Early registration discount

All delegates registering and paying in full by 15th October will be  
entitled to £20 discount on their fee. Contact: Karl or Liz at  
Bodysurf Scotland to make sure of your reduction.

More guest speakers announced

Along with our previously announced presentations we can now announce  
three more special guest speakers.

  Prof. Tim Ingold, the highly respected social anthropologist at  
Aberdeen University, has been invited to present his most recent  
research interests that are currently exciting him. The territory he  
covers is wide and fascinating from environmental perception and  
skilled practice to language and technology, from the dynamics of  
pedestrian movement to the creativity of practice, from lines and  
line-making to cultural improvisation and art. http://www.abdn.ac.uk/


  Australian Richard James Allen is Artistic Director with Karen  
Pearlman of The Physical TV Company, a multi-award-winning and  
critically lauded leader in the international dance on screen  
landscape.  The Physical TV Company develops and produces works  
within and across the media of film, dance and literature.  Karen and  
Richard have a wealth of professional experience in cinema and dance  
and a sustained and visionary  commitment to integrating the two  
arts.  http://www.physicaltv.com.au/


  “In conversation” special event with improvising comedian Phil  
Kay.  To be at one of Phil's shows and expect stand-up would be a big  
mistake. Anything can happen and invariably does! Phil's comedy is a  
unique blend of energy, improvisation and leaps of imagination that  
take his audience on a joyride they'll never forget. In this one off  
event he talks about his work and creative processes.

Artists in residence

We are very pleased to have designer, illustrator and artist, Cavan  
Convery joining our ‘scribe’ team.  Cavan’s role will be as artist in  
residence  drawing from his scant knowledge of dance on screen, but  
his wealth of knowledge in science interpretation and media arts  
combined with highly tuned polemical skills and warm humour will  
surely force us to have to explain ourselves properly. http:// 
www.artsci.co.uk


  Based on participants’ feedback from the first symposium, each  
morning of this year’s event will start with a 45-minute movement- 
based warm-up session. We are delighted that these will be lead by  
choreographer and dance film-maker Litza Bixler. Find out more about  
Litza at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Litza_Bixler




Hu - manifesto

  Just to remind ourselves where we got to last year  we thought we  
should publish here the  (Hu)Manifesto: Possibilities for Screendance.

  This is not an attempt to define screendance or to suggest that  
there is one way to create a screendance.  It is instead, an attempt  
to open and enrich the discourse surrounding the field. In a  
humanifesto, content comes to the surface. This humanifesto asserts  
that screendance has the potential to articulate metaphor, express  
conceptual concerns and manifest thematic possibilities. Inherent in  
the proposition of screendance is the possibility that through an  
accretion of images of bodies in motion, a larger truth may unfold.

* One that is greater than the impact of each moment experienced in  
isolation.

* One in which sequential images in the context of dance on screen  
resonate with accompanying frames of reference to manifest a larger  
understanding of the world.

* That in order to accomplish this, the screendance community must by  
necessity engage itself with rigorous critique that is grounded in  
both pre-existing and yet-to-be articulated methodologies.

Inherent in this proposition is the understanding that the following  
issues are references that may exist in screendance.  It is not an  
exhaustive list:



1. Form

2. Content

3. Technique

4. Gender

5. Ageism

6. Virtuosity

7. Semiotics

8. Meaning

9. Culture

10. Politics

11. Hybridity

12. Identity

13. Populism

14. Race

15. History



While all of these elements need not be present in a screendance, we  
propose that screendance be viewed through these and other external  
prisms in order to afford screendance a level of rigor equal to that  
of other art forms and to facilitate and stimulate informed critique.

  Please let us know if you would like to join us at Findhorn in  
November 2007, or whether you are considering it as a possibility. We  
would also like you to extend this invitation to others who you think  
might be interested in joining us. We look forward to hearing from  
you. With kind regards, Karl Jay-Lewin, Katrina McPherson and Simon  
Fildes
