Edited by Claudia Kappenberg (University of Brighton) and Sarah Whatley (Coventry University), this issue of the International Journal of Screendance dedicates, for the first time in the history of the journal, a whole issue to one work of art, the film All This Can Happen (2012), a collaboration of Choreographer Siobhan Davies and filmmaker David Hinton. The film had its first public screening at Dance Umbrella, London’s international dance festival, on the 13th October 2012. Since then, the work has been screened internationally, reviewed in dance and film journals and online, and been the subject of a symposium at the Freie Universität Berlin in July 2014. The selection of writers included in this issue brings together some of those who have screened the work in their respective venues or festivals, some of those who have contributed to the Berlin Symposium, and others who have engaged with it in their scholarly work or reviewed the film for the wider press. In this way, different voices and perspectives are gathered around one focal point. Besides enriching an understanding of the work in question, this commonality of focus also serves to highlight the extraordinary richness of dialogues that occur in the multidisciplinary field of screendance.
