Definition of a Human Video
From Riki

A Human Video puts action to music. It is a combination of pantomime and acting. Students love practicing and performing Human Videos because they are done in their language, which is music. Students also love to watch Human Video performances, especially if the involve their peers. The overall purpose of a Human Video is to give Glory to God in a medium that students understand and can relate.

Definition of a Human Video
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A human video is a form of theatre combining music, American Sign Language, Modern Dance and drama. A human video consists of a song (usually by a popular singer or group) played over loudspeakers while actors use rhythmic physical movement (gestures and other movements of the limbs and body) to communicate joy, exultation, sadness, and anger. Their movements should demonstrate both a story and the theme of the song being played. The story can be either implicit in the words of the song or a story written independently of the original artist's meaning.
The name “human video” is descriptive of how this dramatic act is performed. Because it typically has no set and limited costumes, it is ideal for performance in any location.
In this case, the performance is presented in a form similar to a music video you might see on MTV, BET, VH1, or similar music networks. It presents a story that illuminates a particular artistic intent through spatial relationships, meaningful gestures, and artistic movement. The fact that it is a live performance is what makes it not only “theatre,” but also “human.” “Human videos” are an amalgamation of a variety of communicative art forms, such as: interpretive dance, modern dance, American Sign Language, music, pantomime, and classic mime.
In the United States, one example of how human videos have permeated the culture is the inclusion of human videos in Fine Arts Festivals (Assemblies of God, Pentecostal Holiness Church, Church of God, etc.) and church ministry groups in a variety of Protestant denominations.
