Continuing Flatpack’s spotlight on screen dance, programmer Sima Gonsai explores the ongoing conversation between dance, film and digital technology.

Dance artist and researcher Karen Wood will present a brief history of Merce Cunningham, a pioneering contemporary dancer and an early innovator in splicing performance with projected imagery. This is then followed by a screening of three original films by Channel 4 Random Acts - Sadler’s Wells, with series producer Anne Beresford hosting a panel of screen dance creators talking about the process behind the films.
