Dance and film come together to make up an ideal partner for the 21st century. Their hybridisation makes them stronger and allows them to be flexible and agile. The democratization of video and new technologies, as well as the new aesthetics and choreographic formulae of dance, create new and fertile territories. However, how are the roles defined in this new world: choreographer or director? Dancer or actor? A piece or a film?
A classical and contemporary dancer, Samuel Retortillo (Logroño, 1980) has worked with more than 50 choreographers for more 20 years in several European companies. He is currently resident artist in CAIN, Colectivo Artistas Inflamables. He founded Madrugada Producciones and heads Plataforma FIVER de Cinedanza, Tecnología and Nuevos Medios (2012-2019) and the Festival de Movimiento and Naturaleza Urbana, Margen de Logroño (2016-2019).
