Course content

This course provides a basic frame in which the student is challenged, mainly through solo compositional tasks with a basic choreographic toolbox. All the tools and the outcomes can sit somewhere on the spectrum between abstract and concrete (narrative/emotional/...) choreography or can be manipulated towards a direction. Concrete course content may include: ways to generate movement, ways to manipulate material with basic variables, ways to abstract material from a concrete source, communicating and reading an intention, using the see/feel/imagine methodology (based on Anna Halprin), experiencing a basic dialogue with music/sound/silence and a first introduction to the DASarts Feedback System. All the above tasks are embedded in group dialogue and referencing examples from other choreographic work from the (current) field in order to enhance reflection and verbalisation skills and help build wider reference perspectives.
