THDA 214 Movement and Media
Cross-listed with FMST 220-02.The class will meet remotely for synchronous sessions at the scheduled course time. In-person office hours meetings with individual students will be available. From Loie Fuller’s luminous Serpentine Dance to Beyoncé’s lavish visual albums, from Busby Berkeley’s elaborate musical productions for the big screen to TikTok’s viral dances for the small screen, movement has been captured on camera to poetic, political, and powerful effect. In this course we will learn the history of the intersection of dance and film/video, examine the current state of this rapidly-evolving art form and explore the craft through our own choreographic and cinematic creations.
