The first session will focus on developing movement improvisation and compositional structures based on images, concepts and themes derived from video images. We will work primarily with developing movement scores for improvisation. We will give feedback and discuss how to open up new movement choices, develop a range of movement within the body and how to sustain the performance of movement scores with clarity.
This workshop will continue from the previous one, but develop more specific choreographic strategies for identifying and shaping inner felt imagery within the physical body to create movement. We will explore how to translate imagery to the body, find movement solutions, and create choreographic material.
The third workshop will focus on creating choreography in relationship to visual projections. Using Improvisational and compositional structures, we will look at how to develop movement that acknowledges the interaction between the dancer and image, focusing on spatial relationships between the live body and the screen while responding to the themes, textures, speed, and spatial information within video projections.
Day 4, 5, 6
Working with visual imagery
The last three-day sessions will focus on the practice of performing with imagery. We will develop movement scores that are structures for interaction with imagery, while acknowledging the rhythm and time structures of video projections. An important component of the workshop will be to focus upon how the dancer’s presence is affected by imagery, how to work directly and/or indirectly with imagery and how to create a ‘wholistic’ relationship between body and image within the performance space.
