Choreography 2B examines artistic dance practice through an integrated approach to practical, studio-based dance-making activities, seminars and research. Two 1.5-hour studio-based classes each week focus on advanced analysis of the relationship between form and content in choreographic structures and the capacity to manipulate movement, spatial environment and music/soundscape. The relationship of dance composition to musical scores and soundscapes will be analysed. Skills in direction of a group will be developed. A one-hour seminar in Dance Analysis each week will examine post-modernism and other trends in dance practice into the twenty first century. There will be reference to dance on film, video and in live performance as well as readings from source material, philosophical and aesthetic writings and dance critiques.
