Camera/Movement is a specially compiled programme of dance films celebrating the ever-evolving relationship between dance and camera. It pinpoints key 20th Century works that articulate the dynamics of space – from the Bauhaus experiments of Oskar Schlemmer and the extravagant spectacles of Busby Berkeley – to ballet and modern classics featuring Rudolf Nureyev, Norman McLaren and Merce Cunningham. Other more recent contributions are by Lloyd Newson, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, Michael Clark and Philippe Decoufle.

Curated by Helena Blaker, this screening programme was part of a larger collaboration between CAPTURE and Netherlands Media Art Institute (www.nimk.nl/en). Following the completion of the CAPTURE project this programme continues to be managed by Portland Green Cultural Projects.
