Going back to the origins of film at the end of the 19th century, this module retraces the history of interactions between dance and image-based technologies.

We shall also interrogate theories elaborated over the past 20 years in this field that is gradually becoming institutionalized (film editing, antigravitational dance, microchoreography for the screen, feminist and anti-racist perspectives, decolonization of screendance, etc.).
