DANCE 371
Seattle Campus

Choreographic Workshop

Performing experience for students in pieces choreographed by faculty members and guest choreographers.

Class description

Course and Process Description: During this course we generate a new work to be included and performed as part of the Faculty Dance Concert 2014, January 23-26 in the Meany Studio Theater. I am interested in the play and overlap between movement, spoken and written text to create a piece that can be accessed and experienced by viewing and/or listening to it. The creative process will be driven by questions such as: Who are you the performer? How do you experience/view/perceive the dance? How do others experience/view/perceive the dance.

The piece is part of an ongoing investigation into identity and aesthetics of access to performance work. In the process we will be building on two recent works perspectives/perception (UC Irvine and IDSI12) as well as 1-2-3, testing. For more background information about the pieces also view: http://faculty.washington.edu/kochj/choreographicwork/index.html

In the process we will be working with movement, microphones, editing spoken and written text and integrate it into one live performance. I am looking for students with a range of interests and abilities spanning a variety of dance styles, movement ranges, poetry, singer/songwriting, physical performance etc. The piece is developed with and on the dancers, accesses your individual skill range and performance experience.
