Films and dance by students Modern Theatre Dance during Cinedans Festival

Published on

From Wednesday 11 until Sunday 15 March dance and film festival Cinedans - Dance on Screen takes place in EYE. This year’s Cinedans sees the first presentation of a film programme for and by dance students at the Amsterdam School of the Arts.

In February, sixteen second-year Modern Theatre Dance students made their own dance film, after a five day workshop, freely interpreting duets by fellow students for the screen. Cinedans and the Beeldmedia department of de Theaterschool coached the students through this process and the resulting films will premiere at the festival. 

To round it all off there’s Dansepidemie, a live re-enactment of the 1912 film Oh You Ragtime. Performed by twelve Modern Theatre Dance students at the Amsterdam School of the Arts and directed by Suzy Blok. Live music is performed by Oscar Jan Hoogland on piano, Michael Moore on clarinet and Mary Oliver on violin.
