Choreography 2A comprises dance-making and dance analysis. Through practical, studio-based dance-making activities and seminars, which examine theoretical approaches to the analysis of dance works, this subject extends choreographic experience and investigates the relationship of artistic practice to critical and cultural theories. Two 1.5-hour studio-based classes each week explore the relationship between form and content in choreography and techniques to devise and manipulate movement. Improvisation and the movement derived from a range of thematic or inspirational sources will be used to develop choreographic material. Collaborative working processes will be emphasised. A one-hour seminar in dance analysis each week will examine the purposes and functions of dance as human behaviour and review Contemporary Dance and Modernism in the twentieth century.
Participation and contribution to course work including satisfactory completion of set tasks (30%); practical and written assignments (including a log book), totalling no more than 2000 words (70%). Hurdle requirement - 80% attendance.
