Course content

In choreography 2 students are introduced to new choreographic approaches that build on the main principles explored in Choreography 1. Students will engage with some choreographic visions embraced by selected teachers and explore personal connections with different approaches. The main task for choreography 2 is to create a site-specific solo that is performed as part of a group performance event. Within the project you must consider the possibilities for your approach to or with the space and research potential connections and performative possibilities. Within the process of creation you will also embrace a range of feedback systems, to give and receive feedback with peers as a crucial part of the creative process. Students will also become acquainted with the different parts of a choreographic process that encompasses inspiration, exploration, sensation, creation, processing, sharing, feedbacking and performing, and reflect on how they relate to each aspect of the creation..
