Performance Project: Not Knowing (DAN4108.01)

Jian Dai (MFA Teaching Fellow, supervised by Terry Creach & Dana Reitz)

I know I don’t know what I know or don’t know. I start with the passion to make something. I don’t know what it will be.  I like the process of learning and searching, understanding myself more as I work through it. Who am I? What do I want? What makes me interested? What can I make? Who are these people who work with me?

Starting from scratch, without a particular image in mind, we will work together to discover new movement material, explore personal movement language, find out what interests us, and find out more about who we are in the working process.  We will work on developing a piece with not only physical and visual clarity, but also emotional connection.  The final result will be performed to the public at the end of the term.
