Workshops 2019


Dantzagunea (a Zinetika collaborator) has organised this laboratory as a precursor to the festival. This work-shop deals with dance and video and is directed by Ibon Taboada and Oihana Varela. The course is aimed at those in the dance and audio-visual worlds (prospective participants must send a brief C.V. and a letter describing their reasons for wanting to take part).

The workshop is designed to blend dance and video, moulding use of the camera to dance so as to find a dialogue between the scrutiny of the camera and the expressiveness of dance. Participants will learn how to connect space (placement)-movement-camera to create different ambiences.

After an introduction to video dance, improvisation resources will be developed and those with the camera will start to internalise movement based on the proposed exercises. The first day will deal with the static and the second with the moving camera.

Dates: October 12th and 13th
Time: 10:00-13:00 / 15:00-18:00
Venue: Gipuzkoako Dantzagunea
Cost: 40€ (course + 1 ticket for Zinetika)

A practical initiation class on video dance production techniques given by the Navarran production company Arena Comunicación.

After an intensive session concentrating on the camera and editing as applied to dance, groups are formed to develop a series of projects. These projects are filmed on the following day and edited the day after that. The works must be finished in 48 hours. The class offers a bold, intense experience to discover the relation-ship between the camera and the body, between editing and choreography.

This activity is aimed at a general audience. Places are limited to 20. Those taking part will make up groups of 2, 3, 4 or 5, according to the nature of their project.
Each should have at least one camera and laptop with sufficient graphic power to edit video. Those without video editing software will receive instructions in the first session on how to download and use the latest version of DaVinci Resolve.

Zinetika will program a session where all the projects will be shown, along with a discussion directed by Arena Comunicación.
