Abstract:

Dance and film have shared the aspiration to creatively sculpt motion and time. Some of the first films ever made featured Annabelle's skirt dance, hand-painted in glowing colours. Isadora Duncan and Ruth St Denis' innovations found their way into Diana the huntress (1916) and The soul of the cypress (1920). Highly cinematic renditions of dance evolved in Stella Simon's Hände (1928), Hector Hoppin's La joie de vivre (1934) and Busby Berkeley's "Don't say goodnight" from Wonder Bar (1934). In counterpoint, ciné-dance experiments by Ralph Steiner, Mary Ellen Bute, Oskar Fischinger, Douglass Crockwell, Slavko Vorkapich and Norman McLaren dispensed with actual dancers in favour of colour, shape, line and form choreographed into abstract light-play.
