INTRODUCTION5

Ch o re o Da nc e Film Festival (CDFF) Founded in 2022, CDFF is the first global platform for dance film organized by Choreomundus Alumni, dedicated to cultivating a new generation of empowered dance filmmakers with a background in dance research. With generous support from the European Union through the Erasmus+ Student and Alumni Alliance (ESAA), CDFF centers the 2022 theme on The Crises That Move Us to invite a rethinking of the socio-political relations between dance and the environment, and perhaps a re-elaboration of the term environment itself. Through a firm belief in diversity, equity, and inclusion, CDFF embraces the challenge to open the platform for unseen bodies and unheard voices—dancing and telling stories about the change they want to be in these unprecedented times we live in.

Ch o re o Da nc e Film Festival (CDFF) promotes the diversity of dance cultures through film and media, assembling an encounter of aesthetic proposals encompassing a wide array of skills, perspectives and knowledge. We aim to bridge the gap between dance and film while opening an innovative space to promote Dance as Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH). This year, we bring together communities from all over the world with a special focus on those whose living environment has been threatened by the climate change crisis humanity is experiencing.

OBJECTIVES

9WELCOME

WELCOME

The spirit of lending a helping hand, of working together, of collaborating is truly flourishing in this year’s reunion of Choreomundus alumni, faculty, and staff. Who would have thought that a graduate programme on dance heritage would celebrate its tenth anniversary after its establishment in 2012. With my fellow conveners, the late Andrée Grau, Georgiana Gore, and László Felföldi, I believe that dancing gives a safe way of being around people, of interacting socially, of experiencing flow and excitement, a feeling that our whole being is Andmoved.so,I am very pleased to welcome you to experience the flow and let the excitement linger throughout the three-night film festival that our hardworking Choreomundus alumni have prepared for us! While we screen the films, let the Choreo Dance Film Festival serve as a reminder that learning about dance is one way of recognizing the value of dance for the community. I hope that these dance films will also communicate the equal value of all human beings and their cultures.

Professor Emeritus, Department of Music Norwegian University of Science and Technology First coordinating Convener of Choreomundus

Two years ago, a student asked me for my best advice about living in the present moment. The pandemic has made me realize that we live for one another. The best way you can feel that you are alive and useful is to help somebody. In return, one has to accept help from others whenever offered because it is also a way of letting other people stay alive, letting other people feel that they still live.

Davi Kopenawa Yanomani, shaman and leader of the Yanomani indigenous tribe of , as a term, is not ours. He suggests thinking of the environment as a whole, as nature, as ecology and not in separate parts - “We defend the forest’s trees, hills, mountains, and rivers; its fish, game, spirits, and human In current times of radical uncertainty, emergent crises and chaos, we have sought for ways to enliven our spirit of experimentation. The word ‘environment’ brings memories and associations to our localised socio-political situation, culture and people within our bodies. As artists and scholars, we inquire on the understanding of the word environment inviting multiple lenses to engage in mutual interconnectedness.

Curators Sumedha Bhattarcharyya Festival Curators CURATORSHIP14

For our first edition, we have centered the theme around the environmental crisis, inviting a rethinking of the relations among politics and the environment, as well as re-elaboration of the term environment itself. Therefore, we have challenged the participants of these films to relate to embodiedness as a possibility to address/represent/inquire on such crises ‘staying in the trouble’ as Donna Haraway states.

We are asking how can dance be environmental and, therefore, political? How can the form of the environment inform the shape of dance as we practice it? How can we create a dialogue between body, land, trees, and cultural memories? How can we contextualise experiment environmentally, or environment experimentally? How can we get a transcendental experience of the realm of dance and film together, encompassing the violence, migrations and precariousness of life from the viewpoint of embodied

With the advent of cognitive automation services, an aesthetic and kinetic gap is inaugurated for human dancers. The presented case of the ‘bionic step’ is an illustration of how permeable dance cultures are to technological developments, and how these in turn have shaped a new canon for how movement is performed, across digital spaces, bodies/avatars and in front of our phones and while stepping into our machine selves. While machines keep progressing in their quest to understand ‘feelings’, they leave behind a trace of images and movement that are constantly reincorporated by human performers to engage in choreography as a medium.

Eegun Szeged by Temi Ami-williams Nigeria

This film is the first cut of a more extensive ethnographic film that was carried out as an experiment in Szeged, Hungary by four foreign dance anthropologists who studied at the university of Szeged for nine months. They were constantly made to know and feel that they were the ‘other’ due to the rather rude staring culture in Hungary, and because of this discovered that there is a way one is perceived by others and in res ponse, how one perceives oneself based on this. This film highlights how foreign people are termed “exotic” and stared at ‘strange ly’ for their hair, fashion style, accent and skin color but stared at in appreciative amazement and awe when dressed as mas querades and parading round the city of Szeged.

A place in the middle of an ever changing city, but frozen in time. We embodied the qualities of decomposing, reshaping, growing, shrinking. We let the stillness fill our bones and time to leave its traces. Star ting this project with a few questions in our heads, we finished it with many more, and we aim to provoke some within our audien ces. How can we, the overground walking community, relate to the underground res ting community? How can we transform, encapsulate, and work with the traces, by means of movements? Searching for herita ge, we made a journey into our bodies and traveled through time.

Fifteen Limeñxs– representing a wide variety of ages, occupations and socio-cultural backgrounds– express their visions of utopia using their bodies and group compositions in this site-specific video dance piece. Working collectively, we explored how to challenge, in small and varied ways, different aspects of the urban status quo in Lima– a city slowly overcoming and redefining a traumatic past with terrorism and public spaces. The video features collective movement and sound compositions created by Fournet and Silva in collaboration with the fifteen workshop participants. Directors: Moyra Silva (Peru) and Adele Fournet (EEUU)

The film explores our particular interpretation of “utopia” as a starting point and trigger to defy, with movements, Lima city’s status quo.
