Dance From LA, Off the Stage & Onto the Screen

Dance From LA, Off the Stage & Onto the ScreenLos Angeles Dance Festival & Dance Camera West: Dance From LA, Off the Stage & Onto the Screen

In response to the pandemic, the City of Los Angeles invited these two local dance organizations to create online programs that highlight the innovation of Los Angeles dance makers.

For one week, viewers can view 7 day access to the films of a collaborative showcase between Dance on Camera West and Los Angeles Dance Festival. This was to be a Live Madrid Theater festival but adapted due to Covid. Funded in part by the City of LA Department of Cultural Affairs. DCW is offering 6 dance films and LADF is offering 5 original new works  in both stage and film format.

Now that live events are on pause and must be rescheduled and/or re-envisioned, DCW and LADF working to sustain dance film viewing.  Through a partnership with a DCA, these films are now available for free home viewing.

Los Angeles Dance Festival
After canceling the annual month long  April festival of 50 companies 3 venues  a new online version has been created in collaboration with DCA and DCW. Director Deborah Brockus has pulled together all new original works highlighting the changes when a piece is seen live vs edited into a dance film. The 5 films were created in a pandemic at Brockus Project Studios as a tiny sample of LA choreography. Dances were created with safety in mind as solos shot in studio with items on hand as part of LADF choreography highlighting the changes when a piece is seen live vs in edited dance film.

"Perspective" is taking a moment to let creative energy flow between different viewpoints of the collaborators and their mediums. In a form of chance operations the artists created their material individually and then brought them together for a brief moment. The mirrors reflect that present moment and allow the audience to observe the perspective of the individual collaborators.
