A Library of Dance Performance Online

July 3, 2013 | By French Culture

Unlike more static visual arts, dance performances are fleeting, occurring at a specific place for a brief time. In recent years, more institutions are making efforts to preserve and share these ephemeral events through video archives accessible on the internet. Launched in 2011 by La Maison de la danse in Lyons in partnership with the Centre national de la danse, Numeridanse.tv is one of the most ambitious attempts to archive dance online. The site hosts a large collection of video recordings, including performances along with associated interviews and documentaries. From ballet to postmodern dance, from contemporary productions to historical recordings, Numeridanse.tv covers a broad range of works and many of which are also sorted into "channels" associated with institutions, companies and choreographers, and "themas" with accompanying texts and interviews. Aiming to attract both the general public and dance professionals, the site continues to expand, regularly adding new content.
