DAN 305 - Site-Specific and Experimental Dancemaking (4)

Site-specific dance and experimental dance are genres in choreography and dancemaking that explore the dynamics of space, time, thematic material and the body. This hybrid course will introduce students to ways of making movement, and filming movement for specific sites, installations, and film in reference to thematic materials. Since the 1960’s dance artists have combined media and experimented with space, time and the moving image. This course will address in tandem with practice, the hybrid nature of dancemaking in this genre of experimentation, and in current staged contemporary dance. The class will engage text-based dance studies theories on space, time and filmic rendition to enliven dialogue and practice. Permission of instructor is required. Every other Fall.
