Choreography Workshop: Site-Specific Performance
DANC 371
Spring 2011
Section: 01  

This course addresses the construction of contemporary performance in alternative, nontheatrical spaces. Students will create, design, and structure movement and image metaphors; design and realize scenic objects; and integrate technologies that enhance performance at large. Daily practice will focus on developing compositional tools to trigger events, to set-off the performance space, and to create optimal conditions for audience and performer participation. Skills in movement observation, critical reading, and video analysis will inform the course's practical and historical frameworks.

In addition, choreographers/directors will work with a design team composed of student lighting designers and scenic designers from THEA359 to realize creative solutions to staging place-specific performance.
