Kinodance is an interdisciplinary artist collaborative founded in Boston in 1999 by choreographer/dancer Alissa Cardone, filmmaker Alla Kovgan and visual artist Dedalus Wainwright out of a passion for the kinetic arts, experimentation and a strong belief in the power of interdisciplinary collaborations.
Among Kinodance’s creations are intermedia and expanded cinema stage performances, installations and films.
Critics describe Kinodance performance as “stunning”, "mesmeric", “…a daring and dramatically theatrical experience”, “…a breathtaking synthesis of live and filmed dance”, and “mysterious and vivid, formally sophisticated and painterly…”
Our work merges boundaries between dance, cinema, visual art, and sound, developing a common language of interaction among art media. Choreography of elements is the term we use to formally describe our creative 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.
Kinodance Company was selected one of Dance Magazine’s “25 To Watch” in 2008.
