TenduTV announced on March 17th the launch of the digital Dance on Camera Festival on Hulu, at www.hulu.com/network/tendutv. The digital Dance on Camera Festival is an extension of the Dance Films Association’s Dance on Camera Festival (DOCF), which it has produced annually for the last 38 years, the last 14 of which have been co-presented with the Film Society of Lincoln Center.
TenduTV is a broadband channel focused exclusively on dance-related content. TenduTV can be found at Sling.com and TidalTV.com. I like their site for the articles and discussions on technology, and copyright and intellectual property issues.
TenduTV features programming from four distinct categories:
Performance Captures: Filmed recordings of live performances or works intended to be performed on stage.
Screendance: Also known as Dance film, or Dance for Camera, these works are typically only intended to be captured on film, and never performed in front of a live audience.
Documentaries: Interviews, behind-the-scenes footage and other features highlighting the impact of movement on people’s daily lives.
Original Programming: Shows produced exclusively by and for TenduTV.
“Through TenduTV’s platform partners, dance artists and organizations will be able to transport their vision beyond the physical theater and engage audiences through computers and 200 million digital devices including internet-enabled televisions, portable video players and mobile devices.”
Dance on Camera’s 2010 Tour Event schedule lists UNR as a possible stop, at present no date has been determined.
