The CHOREOGRAPHIC CAPTURES art project was initiated by JOINT ADVENTURES in 2008 under the motto: Art for those who didn't ask for it! The goal is as simple as it is ambitious: to use unconventional means to increase people's awareness of the art forms of film, dance and choreography. The choreographic short films should surprise their audience at different locations where they are least expected.


152 films from 34 different countries have been submitted to the 9th International CHOREOGRAPHIC CAPTURES Competition. The jury – Kristina Köhler (University of Zurich), Eva Martinez (Sadler’s Wells, London), Claudia Rosiny (Swiss Federal Office of Culture, Bern) – has chosen 5 winning films out of all submissions which have been awarded on November 25, 2017 by Walter Heun (JOINT ADVENTURES, München) at Tanzfestival Winterthur in cooperation with

CHOREOGRAPHIC CAPTURES is a project of JOINT ADVENTURES – Walter Heun in the context of ACCESS TO DANCE.

Choreography & Film

The focal point of the project is the International CHOREOGRAPHIC CAPTURES Competition. This competition is held once each year. JOINT ADVENTURES is inviting choreographers, dancers, film and (multi-)media artists from throughout the world to develop new aesthetic approaches and visual languages for choreography and film in a 60 seconds format.


Art for those
who didn't ask for it!

60 Seconds

The International CHOREOGRAPHIC CAPTURES Competition led to the development of a new artistic format. CHOREOGRAPHIC CAPTURES – 60 seconds (max.) filmic miniatures – experiment with the unlimited possibilities of film and choreography and establish a new genre after the dance video.
