Proximity and intimacy

At a time where media circulation is intense, in which way do we see the body in movement? How can we define intimacy while cameras proliferate in our daily lives? What borders should be created between what’s intimate and what’s public? In this workshop, the notions of micro-choreography, self-representation and body-of-the-camera will be explored through movement sessions, film viewing, group discussions and camera work. Bringing together simultaneously dance and cinema, this work will focus on proximity, trust and ethics. It is a laboratory where the camera will become an extension of bodies and visions, and a meeting point between two people.


This workshop is intended for performers, choreographers, videomakers, filmmakers or artists interested by the meeting between movement and camera. Participants must register in pairs and have a camera (a smartphone is enough). This workshop is part of the first edition of Rencontres Internationales Regards Hybrides taking place from November 10 to 12, 2017 and dedicated to on-screen dance practices and speeches.

Camille Auburtin

Camille Auburtin is a director and dancer based in Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France. She has been doing researches about the body and movement for 15 years through creative documentaries, experimental movies, artist portraits and mediation tools for dance. Since 2013, she develops an artistic approach in the prison environment and creates collective videodances with inmates from the Maison d’arrêt of Bordeaux-Gradignan. She takes interest in the tension existing in this context between inside and outside, and in the possible ways of liberation between body and camera in a prison. She currently works on an experimental documentary about her grandmother who is now 89 years old, a former ballet dancer suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. This film project describes the story of their relation, which started from the beginning, through the body and dance.
