From Plie to Print: One Art Form Dances Its Way Onto Another
Plenty of people say that print has too many limitations, but this thought process is being challenged and proven wrong by Dance Ink magazine. After a few brief hiatuses, the new issue gives a nod to original premises and has the same cult following vibe. Dance Ink has always had a way of “creating a unique and enduring stage for dance, using great photography, powerful design and the beauty of high-quality printing.”
By presenting the idea that a dance performance can and should be enjoyed in other ways than experiencing it live, or watching a recording, Dance Ink has become an inclusive way to bring a variety of art forms into one, consumable channel. Thanks to this, print is having a moment.
New ideas are edging their way into the Dance Ink ranks and presenting a new world of opportunities for the print industry. Up next on their plate: environmental installations. They say that this means posters and murals will be available on demand.
One article raves, “Beautifully produced through high-quality offset printing, the new magazine is housed in a clear sleeve, enhancing its tactility.”
Another touches on the ways that the magazine used a variety of inks throughout the design of the issue, causing transparency on certain pages, “suggesting layers of performance and motion.”
