DANC 011. Dance Lab I: Making Dance
So, have you thought about using your body as spatial sculpture? as a rhythmic instrument? as a text embedded with social/psychological/political meaning? body as narrative? Or maybe you have dance moves you'd like to develop. OK: Take a Choreography class taught by Kim Arrow with special guest Roni Koresh, Artistic Director of the Koresh Dance Company. Roni, and/or a member of his company, will teach several classes: students may wish to experiment with ideas/methods from experience with Roni after his visit ends.
Topics will include movement invention, movement motivation, improvisation, and structural development; choreographic elements of time, force, and space; collaboration within the design context; solo, duet, and possibly group studies. Reading, video and live concert viewing, weekly short dance studies.
Prerequisite: Any dance course, dance or movement training, or permission of the instructor.
Corequisite: A course in dance technique must be taken concurrently.
