DANC 049N. Dance Performance Repertory: Performance Improvisation: an interdisciplinary approach

(Cross-listed as MUSI 049C )
This performance course will examine improvisation as a tool to create and expand performance potentials across art-forms and from multiple global perspectives. As dancers, musicians, artists, designers, writers, thinkers and performers we will practice collective improvisation and experiment with how our skills, ideas, instruments and technologies can mesh together - dancer as sound, musician as body, stagecraft as movement, ideas as images - inspiring new possibilities for unique live performance. Students do not need to have a background in dance or music to participate in the class. We have all been accumulating movement, sound, literary and visual information throughout our lives, and your personal accumulation of this information will be our raw material for investigation in class.  This course is ideal for any students with interest in exploring performance, transformation, the immediate moment and your own languages of expression.
