Dancing on Site and on Camera

Dancing on Site and on Camera

A conversation and screening with Joanna Haigood, Stephan Koplowitz and David Rousseve

Co-presented with Dance Camera West

Alpert Award-winning choreographers Joanna Haigood, Stephan Koplowitz and David Rousseve carry out a lively discussion about their practices and their far-ranging experience with the intersection of site-specific choreography and media, as demonstrated in film and video works screened by each of the three artists. How does site—a particular natural, architectural or cultural environment—inspire dance? How can film document the process and product of site-specific dance? Joanna Haigood is artistic director of San Francisco’s Zacho Dance Theater. Koplowitz, based in Los Angeles, is currently directing the touring company TaskForce, which completed a residency in Plymouth, England, this summer. David Rousseve, also based in L.A., directs REALITY, a dance theater company that is now touring a work called Saudade. The panel is introduced by CalArts President Steven D. Lavine and moderated by Irene Borger, dance ethnologist and director of the Alpert Award in the Arts.

Funded in part with generous support by The Herb Alpert Foundation. The Alpert Award in the Arts, a fellowship program that supports innovative practitioners in the fields of dance, film/video, music, theatre and visual arts, is administered by CalArts on behalf of The Herb Alpert Foundation.
