MOVEMENT FOR PERFORMANCE
Students will explore the full instrument of the performer; namely, the human body. We will begin with experiments in tempo, repetition, and duration. We will develop choreography using Viewpoints, Contact Improv, Lecoq’s Seven Levels of Tension, object observation, elements, and color. Students will be asked to create “movement-based pieces” in an effort to discover and articulate the languages that the body communicates regardless of the words spoken on stage. In all aspects, the goals of this class are to enable students to be courageous with their physical selves, more articulate with their expression, and more personally expressive in their performances.
