|Subject Overview:||This subject is for students specialising in Choreography, Dance and Theatre Animateuring. This subject focuses upon the potential for interplay and dynamic dialogue between the building blocks of performance creation. Seminars and practical/studio-based classes provide interaction with other discipline streams (e.g. sound, music composition, film, design) to develop communication and collaborative abilities within processes of artistic composition. |
There is a focus upon design and light and an exploration of the generative processes used in performance creation (kinaesthetic creativity, sound design for choreography, writing for performance, cross modal improvisation). Laboratory classes explore the effect of light, space, form, colour and texture, allowing students to develop design concepts together, to experiment, and to become familiar with lighting and set design methods, materials and possible solutions. A series of seminars focus upon creative teams of professional practitioners e.g. designers and directors, designers and choreographers, who discuss the ways in which collaboration can occur in the development of design/production concept and realisation
|Assessment:||Individual and collaborative practical projects (55%), written assignments and reports equivalent to no more than 2500 words (45%) (intervals through semester). Hurdle requirement 80% attendance |
