Abstract and Keywords

This chapter reflects on some of the most important transformations that contributed to the development of Brazilian videodance. Proposing a feasible mapping of the many works considered to be the most emblematic in the last four decades, the study identifies three generations of creators, starting in the 1970s with Analívia Cordeiro, the next two decades with videodance festivals like Carlton Dance, and culminating in the twenty-first century with numerous artists, choreographers, and producers, and especially the project dança em foco. This videodance scene is in a constant process of transformation that needs to be investigated aesthetically, politically, and conceptually, in dialogue with ideas stemming from some of the most important Brazilian scholars in the areas of video and dance. This chapter also develops an approach to how videodance (re)invents the relation between video and dance with each new work, while additionally assessing how these works resonate within contemporary art contexts.

Keywords: Brazilian videodance, Analívia Cordeiro, Carlton Dance, dança em foco, contemporary art, videodance festivals
