As a part of Brighton Dance Festival, Katie Phelan taught a Screendance workshop. Originally planned for an in-person festival, BDF was transitioned to an online modality due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. Through the workshop, the dancers built movement and footage for a ScreenDance film; communicating solely through Zoom and using personal devices to film.
