Contemporary dance was born from the experiences of the avant-gard of the Seventies. Since some years this form of dance is the more and more present in theaters and studios. Hip Hop, Buto, acrobatics are just some of the different genres of contemporary dance. Its inclusion in the urban and natural environment reveals a new esthetic and a new relationship with the audience.
This DVD presents a collection of exctracts of shows that want to represent the different forms of relationships between the dancer's body and the open environment (nature, streets, architecture, ...).
The video is divided in 7 parts :
- body in the air, body in the water
- Dance in the asphalt
- New landscapes
- Motors and work areas
- Hephemeral and Heritage
- Shared Dances
