Winter Screen Dance Concert 2021 and Live Post-performance Question-and-Answer Session
Welcome to the inaugural Cal Lutheran Winter Screen Dance Concert!
Screen dance has been developing since the advent of moving film, but it has reached heightened importance in the current pandemic. Along with university dance programs across the nation, our Department of Theatre Arts and Dance launched into screen dance. We began adding to our choreographic skills, knowledge of shot angles, shot composition, focal length, key light, fill light, editing and so much more. We were graciously supported by the leadership and students in the Cal Lutheran Department of Film and Television.
The first two screen dances in our concert, “an admission of silence.” and “Vanquish,” have been submitted to the American College Dance Association Screen Dance Festival. These dances will be adjudicated by a panel of professional screen-dance choreographers. Ten dances will be selected to be honored in a national screen-dance festival.
“Unbound,” the final dance in our Winter Screen Dance Concert, was the first screen dance produced at Cal Lutheran. Created during the fall semester in 2019, it premiered in a nonadjudicated showing at the American College Dance Association Baja Conference in March 2020. It has won numerous awards in film festivals across the nation.
The concert will be followed by a question-and-answer session with participants.
To watch the films and meet the choreographers, cast and crew of the screen dances presented in this concert, please register in advance.
