Watch Francesca Harper’s project, Emergence and Discovery: Digital Dance Portraits, originally presented virtually on Dec. 3, 2020.
The project facilitated collaborative construction and the development of 10 short, personal films allowing movement, filmmaking, images, text, music, and discovery in natural and industrial habitat to be accessible and serve as inspiration. The films ask: as dance artists emerge from isolation and reshape their lives, how do they preserve the moment? This existential question has been translated into art.
ABOUT PRINCETON DANCE FESTIVAL REIMAGINED
The Program in Dance presented an exciting and innovative, reimagined virtual edition of the annual Princeton Dance Festival featuring six diverse, professional choreographers who created new dances with Princeton students despite the restrictions of the COVID pandemic.
Led by Peter Chu, Francesca Harper, Rebecca Lazier, Dean Moss, Silas Riener, and Olivier Tarpaga, students explored the intersections of dance and multimedia performance, digital animation, filmmaking, site based work, and music. Each evening was a completely different and unique experience followed by a question and answer session with the choreographers.
