Rosenberg is the chair of the School of Education's Art Department

The talk will visualize a history of screendance and its theory and practice in a way that focuses on the intersections of choreography, visual arts, theater, storytelling and more. 

In an essay from 2000 titled "Video Space: A Site for Choreography," Rosenberg writes that "Video space as a site for choreography is a malleable space for the exploration of dance as subject, object and metaphor, a meeting place for ideas about time, space and movement."

Now, Rosenberg will expand this scope to include "hand drawn"  technologies, and will explore the history of dance and sequential image.

Rosenberg's lecture is presented by the Stanford Colloquium on Dance Studies.
