Video Dance Workshop at Costa Contemporánea

Costa Contemporánea met La Ignorancia to create a unique video dance project that took place at the Natural Park of Cabo de Gata, (Almería, Spain).

This video-dance project has been conceived as creative break for directors, dancers, performers, photographers, film technicians or anyone else interested in the art of filmmaking.


A new concept with the goal of creating cultural and educational experiences in a unique environment.

Costa Contemporánea broadened its horizons to international participants thanks to the collaboration and experience of the multidisciplinary collective La ignorancia dance film music, based in Brussels since 2008 and formed by the choreographer / filmmaker Ana Cembrero and the cinematographer /musician Jorge Piquer.


During the workshop participants approached the currently under expansion art genre video dance: reviewing the history of cinema and dance, learning the technical aspects of the camera, editing and post-production software, introducing themselves to the new independent filmmaking technologies as well as the low-cost HDSLR cameras.

They analyzed motion from a cinematographic point of view and the relationship between body and audiovisual language. Overall, participants explored their personal creativity through practical exercises and carried out their dance-film from the first steps, wrapping up with a general overview of the different coverage media and distribution.


A selection of the work created at the workshop was screened at International Dance Festival Mes de Danza de Sevilla (see pictures) and at EAMM Arts School Miguel Marmolejo (see pictures
