Collaboration between filmmakers and dance makers began with the dawn of cinema, and today virtually everyone working in dance uses media. Envisioning Dance on Film and Video provides personal accounts by professionals who have set the standard for this creative endeavor. Contributors include choreographers, filmmakers, film editors and producers, archivists, historians, critics, and scholars. Forty groundbreaking films and videos excerpted in the landmark two-hour DVD companion illustrate fifty original essays. Adding to the essays and DVD are timelines, storyboards, choreographic notes, photographs, personal sidebars, and resource guides. Envisioning Dance on Film and Video provides the most comprehensive information on this subject to date. It is a work that will appeal to all students (and practitioners) of dance and film.
