Danse / Cinéma

“Dance and cinema tell stories using gestures. Stories that can be quite abstract but stories nevertheless […]. This book, jointly published with Capricci publishing house, and the video installation Filmer la danse aim at pointing out the crossroads where, through gesture, dance collides with cinema.
What gesture for what story? What is a dancing cowboy? How can you zoom in on a sequence, by what invention of the face? Why is Chiara Mastroianni so fond of dancing portés (lifts)? Will 3D, with its different perspective of space, bring cinema a little closer to the stage?”

Stéphane Bouquet, writer, scriptwriter, cinema critic, and dancer with Mathilde Monnier.
