Improvisation Ensemble for Dancers & Musicians (DAN4357.01)

Susan Sgorbati; Michael Wimberly

This advanced course focuses on work in the performance of improvisation. For dancers, special attention is given to the development of individual movement vocabularies and the exploration of emergent forms and structures within an ensemble.

For musicians, special attention is given to creating rhythms and sonorities which can then be manipulated and developed while interacting with dancers in the moment.

Dancers are expected to have experience with improvisation in performance and are asked to develop a structure for the group. Musicians should have basic skills on their instrument and be able create and convey a sense of form to other musicians in an efficient way.

Both dancers and musicians will meet together on Mondays and meet separately for their other class time. Dancers will meet Mondays and Thursdays.
