Screendance: Inscribing the Ephemeral Image, is now available through Oxford University Press. Written by artist, scholar, and pioneer in screendance, Douglas Rosenberg, the book has been praised as “a must-read for practitioners and theorists alike” and “a window to the complexities of discourses in Screendance.” The practice of dance and the technologies of representation has excited artists since the advent of film. Screendance weaves together theory from art and dance as well as appropriate historical reference material to propose a new theory of screendance, one that frames it within the discourse of post-modern art practice. Screendance is accompanied by a companion website featuring additional illustrations. Available now through Oxford University Press, Amazon.com, www.bn.com, or your local bookstore.
The 2nd issue of The International Journal of Screendance-Scaffolding the Medium is now available.
Scaffolding the Medium brings together a variety of historical texts within the context of screendance to both create a common knowledge base and also to support a kind of cantilevered interest. This issue opens with an edited transcript of a presentation by Professor Ian Christie in which Christie surveys a history of cinema under the title The Cinema Has Not Yet Been Invented. This transcript is followed by five curated discussions on this initial idea as it relates to contemporary screendance.
Edited by Douglas Rosenberg and Claudia Kappenberg, this issue also features a report on the recent Screendance Symposium in Brighton by Claudia Kappenberg and Sarah Whatley.
