Building Physical Literacies: Practices in Contemporary Dance

DAN 401

Info tab content
This advanced studio course compares practices and performance methods of diverse approaches to the body and community in contemporary dance. Through a comparative embodied approach, students will train intensively with a rotating faculty to develop physical research built on a synthesis of experiences. The course exposes students to leading developments in improvisation and choreography and examines their philosophical, cultural and physiological underpinnings. Select readings and viewings provide a lens to examine how dance and movement training fuels individual development, choreographic process and aesthetic research.
