kinodance company an interdisciplinary artist collective making stage performances, installations and film
Kinodance Company is an artist collaborative founded in Boston in 1999 by choreographer/dancer Alissa Cardone, filmmaker Alla Kovgan and visual artist Dedalus Wainwright out of passion for the kinetic arts, experimentation and a strong belief in the power of interdisciplinary collaborations. Since 2004, core members include choreographer/dancer Ingrid Schatz and lighting designer Kathy Couch. Among Kinodance’s creations are intermedia and expanded cinema stage performances, installations and films. Choreography of elements is the term that Kinodance invented to formally describe their art making process. In Kinodance performances, each element (dance, cinema, set, sound) is a strong, fully developed score that compliments the others — sometimes soloing, sometimes partnering, sometimes driving a tight ensemble. The outcome is multi-sensory, immersive experiences that rejuvenate the eye and perception. DeAnna has been collaborating, teaching, performing and touring with Ingrid Schatz and Alissa Cardone since 1999. She dances as a soloist with Kinodance (since 2006) and has performed with the company at The Tsai Performing Arts Center, The Institute of Contemporary Art, Connecticut College and Keene State College. Kinodance was selected as one of Dance Magazine's "25 to watch" in 2008.
