I am not versed in dance theory or history, and so when I see a dance performance, the only basis I have for a response is my visceral experience— did I feel the performers connected with me and held my attention? Video on the other hand, is my profession, so I confess that when I’m presented with a “dance film” or “dance video,” I begin with preconceptions, and not all of them are positive. For example, as a rule I am wary of graphic and editorial effects in such videos. Most of the time I feel that video-specific effects and multiple cuts are an unwelcome source of interference in dance films and videos, filtering and diluting performances.
