In Miami, we're used to festivals taking up every free weekend during "season," that perfectly crisp time of year when the rest of the nation is freezing and we're finally hitting temperatures below 80 degrees. Though most of these festivals revolve around food or music, we get some pretty world-class art festivals too — like the indomitable Art Basel Miami Beach and Art Wynwood. Three years ago, a newcomer emerged on the scene, a festival that blends various art forms — movement, film, and visual art. Screen Dance Miami was created by Tigertail Productions, one of the city's oldest arts institutions. Director Mary Luft sought to work with both local and international dancers exploring new ways of capturing movement on film. Screen Dance is more than just live recording — rehearsed choreography is warped onscreen using visual tricks to guide the viewer to consider dance in a different realm.
