What will the workshop involve?
During the session Jackie will focus on materials contained in her resource pack
Choreographic Outcomes – improving dance composition. The session will be a practical workshop using materials contained in the Resource Pack, with discussion and evaluation of the resources. The aim of this groundbreaking resource pack is to teach students how to create FORM in their dance compositions. This difficult aspect is demonstrated by professionals and young students who perform two solos, four duos, trio and quintet excerpts on the interactive CD ROM disc. Each aspect of form – motifs, developments, variations, contrasts, floor and air patterns, orchestration of dancers in time and space – is studied and explored by the students in practical composition tasks.
Mon 11th - 15th March 2013
