We’re delighted to inform you that rými/plads (space), one of our dance videos from our project Bekkur/Bænk 1,2,3,… was selected to take part in the DANCE:FILM 13 festival in Edinburg, Scotland.
An online series of short programmes of films from around the world. These tasty morsels will range from short dance documentaries to bite sized programmes of short dance films.
Our video has been teamed up with the Irish dance film/documentary: The Area(click name for sample) - Macushla Dance Club for the over 50s is a motley group from Dublin’s rough and tough north inner city, who share a love of dancing.-
Online Streaming is from Monday 4th – Sunday 10th November 2013. £2.49 per programme.
The conference brings together artists and researchers to extend the discussion on artistic research to the inter/national field and is an initiative of the ArtEZ Master of Choreography and Bertha Bermudez / ICKamsterdam, with the support of the ArtEZ Professorship Theory in Art.
The Program features few of the who’s who in the Dance on Film world of today and we are humbled to have the chance to have our work shown alongside them.
We are also grateful for the kind words the Festival Organisers wrote about our work in their Press Release:
The three 90-second companion short shorts produced and directed by Ingi Jensson & Heike Salzer of England provide a visual treat. In “höfn/harbor” a bright red clad dancer partners with a bright yellow structure at Reykjavik’s harbor. Trees and logs at a site north of Copenhagen form the backdrop for “skógur/forest.” In “strönd/beach” tall grasses form the common mise-en-scène for dancers on separate beaches, one in Iceland and one in Denmark.
The paper ‘The experience of space in the creative process: Bekkur/Baenk 1,2,3…a multi-locational Nordic site specific dance film installation’ will be presented by Heike at the Annual International Conference of the Royal Geographical Society-IBG in London.
The theme of the conference is ‘The geographical imagination’ and it attracts over 1,000 geographers from around the world.
The paper is part of a session that reflects on the relationship between geography and art.
We are delighted to have been offered to take part in the Moviehouse event ‘Movement Everywhere’ at the 3rd Ward in NewYork on the 13th of March 2011.
Two of our dance videos will be shown at the event and we are hoping for a lively dialogue with the public via web-cam or in person.

What is Moviehouse?
Moviehouse is an interactive screening series featuring film and video work by the city’s most intrepid moviemakers and performance artists. We project a curated show on alternative spaces throughout the city. At each screening we invite our audience into a salon-style dialogue among filmmakers, audience members and the wider community.
Jeannette Ginslov interviews Islandic cartoon artist Ingi Jensson & German choreographer Heike Salzer, 11 June 2010 at the Dansehallerne Copenhagen Denmark, about their dance video installation work that resides on several sites and cities, in a variety of formats and also on an internet platform.
Is this a work that bends cinema? If it is, how?
What traditional modes of presentation is the work challenging? Do all these formats, platforms and sites, break and challenge the viewers perception of dance video? What parameters did you change in order for these works to exist on different viewing platforms? What kind of viewing experience does the viewer have and expect or are these expectations challenged?
