Chirstinn Whyte and the new era of screendance

The era of screendance commissioning for television is long over, and within a wider contemporary landscape of sweeping funding cuts, specialist niche festivals – Dance on Screen at The Place, South East Dance Agency’s Dance for Camera Festival in Brighton, and Moves in Manchester and Liverpool – read as a roll call of the fallen.

It is arguably now easier than has ever been the case to create screen-based work using materials found close to hand and home and to access screening opportunities across a variety of technological platforms as part of a rapidly evolving global screen culture – a culture which includes six-second uploadable loops, myriad mobile phone apps and increasingly lightweight recording devices.
