Dance Film Sound Lab: Sound Artist / Musician Call Out

Tura In collaboration with Strut Dance, Deborah May and Adelina Larsson Mendoza lead an immersive film, sound, and choreography workshop for dancers and musicians/sound artists, in which makers of sound and dance explore musical/movement ideas and collaborate in creating sound and choreography for the camera.

Beginning with improvisation, creating sound with moving bodies and movement, and inspired by sound, the workshop will encourage imaginative and innovative ways of making and capturing movement and sound with consideration to light, sound, space, time and environment.

Recording and filming all stages and exercises, participants will delve into the requirements and rigours of filmmaking, the richness of cinematic language, sound design, and dance movement, plus experience the exhilaration of devising, making, and completing a short film of their own.

Participants will be supported with a $1200 stipend for the period of the workshop. There are 8 places available for STRUT Members and 4 places available for musicians/sound artists. 

Artists may wish to submit material created during the Dance Film Sound Lab to STUT’s 20th anniversary Dance Film Retrospective, held later in the year.
