Screendance curation, postcolonial and feminist perspectives and image technologies

Regards Hybrides is preparing for the next festival 21-24th November, in Montreal Canada: “An International Forum returns with its second edition. Conceived as a key event dedicated to the interaction between dance and cinema in the age of digital media, the Internet and the multiplication of screens in our daily lives, the forum gathers researchers, artists and the general public around artworks and major issues. This year, artist and curator Priscilla Guy invites us to take a critical look at the interactions between dancing bodies and cameras through popular culture and low-tech creation. In a sea of technological innovation, what becomes of creativity on a human scale and its impact on our relationship with the world on a daily basis? Favouring postcolonial and feminist perspectives, twenty guests from Canada and abroad will share their thoughts as part of screenings, performances, lectures, and round-table discussions.”
