Performance Project: Memories, Present Moments and Movements Merge

This is a course from a previous year. View the current courses

In this course students will participate in developing the template for the choreography.  Each will have the opportunity to share histories, experiences, fables, or current personal, community and world issues around a selected theme.  The instructor as the main choreographer will employ the dancers’ input with stories and movement ideas.  The work will include speaking live or in recordings by the students. Dance vocabulary will focus on abstract enhancement of storytelling; high energy contrasts; extreme clarity in lines, articulation and momentum; broad use of space.  Dancers will be coached to achieve high level performance skills, including expressions of the theatrical within the dance.
