This is a studio practice course that approaches choreography as a practice of research and discovery. The course will utilize choreographic and verbal discourse to reflect on each participant’s assumptions about choreography, as well as the assumptions of its traditions, with the goal of assisting each student to formulate her or his own questions, ideas and methods. Students will practice a basic research methodology for the creation of movement studies, resulting in the creation of a completed group dance at the conclusion of the course Students will work both collaboratively and as choreographers authoring their own works, and will learn methods to describe, analyze and critique each other’s choreographic research. Required reading and additional research assignments will support the students’ studio practice. By design, this course is taught by a rotating group of artists currently practicing in the field, giving students the opportunity to engage with varied approaches to choreographic research as conceived and employed by contemporary practitioners. Course is repeatable with different instructors. Prerequisite: Intro to Choreographic Research or Choreography 1.
Open to Undergraduate students.
