Choreographic Process into Performance 4 is comprised of two areas; Choreography and Performance. Choreography will extend students’ abilities to creatively use choreographic techniques and processes in sophisticated and inventive ways. Central foci will be the inclusion and use of music, the development of complex group structures in time and space and the consideration of the performance space. The latter will involve exploration of the differences and similarities between choreographing in and for traditional performance venues such as studios and theatres, and the range of possibilities in non traditional performances spaces and site specific work. Building on the theoretical and practical frameworks established in Choreographic Process into Performance 3 choreography for groups continues as an important outcome. Methods of doing this as a sole choreographer are investigated and developed including leadership and directing skills. Students will reflect on their own skills development and critically analyse their own and others’ creative and choreographic work verbally and in writing.
In Performance students will participate in the third of the five performance projects central to the Bachelor of Fine Arts (Dance) course. Students will participate in making an original work by a guest choreographer or learn and remount an extant dance from a choreographer’s repertory. Students will consolidate their skills as participatory and collaborative dance artists and performers in the creative development processes and/ or the learning and rehearsal stages of a dance work. Interpretive, expressive and articulate physical skills will further develop as students continue to investigate what embodied performance means. Task-based activities to derive new movement material, improvisations, research and a range of ways of exploring creative ideas may be expected in a guest choreographer’s process. This area of the subject will culminate in a Performance season that also includes dances performed by Choreographic Process into Performance 2 students.
