In 2003 Gretjen Clausing, Program Director, Scribe Video Center and Terry Fox, Director, Philadelphia Dance Projects, teamed up to co-curate “Motion Pictures.”
Now in its 7th year, it has become a unique mini-festival that explores how film and video serve as natural collaborative medium for dance, highlighting the power of image and motion in both.
The festival features experimental and innovative shorts, documentaries, “moc”umentaries and animations. There have been documentaries about Maya Deren, Carmen Amaya, Geoffrey Holder and Carmen DeLavallade Mark Morris and the Paris Opera Ballet along with imaginative ground breaking work by Pooh Kaye, Hilary Harris and Lloyd Newson among many others.
PDP partners with the Dance Film Association and some of the films from Dance On Camera ’09 at Lincoln Center will be featured in Motion Pictures ’09.
