Experiments in Choreography:  Body, Object, Light

Listed in: Theater and Dance, as THDA-53


Jim Coleman (Section 01)


What creative opportunities and limitations does duet work occasion? Creating a duet with another person requires collaboration, but how do you collaborate with an object, or with something as evanescent as light? This course will explore the concept of duet work through the lens of three separate choreographic projects, focused, respectively, on the body, objects and light. Course work and research will include short compositional experiments, structured improvisations, readings and video viewings.

Instructor consent required for students with no experience in improvisation or composition.
