The Perfect Gesture (DAN2148.02)

Ralph Lemon

Creative gestures possess a cultural DNA.  This lab explores the physical and performative relationship of the body to a student’s cultural whole.  Students will study, explore and negotiate what a perfect gesture might be by viewing (watching video examples), improvising and thinking with their particular body politics.  A primary question holding this lab together will be, where is efficiency and urgency in an unwieldy physical experimentation, a planned unknown.  An impossible good labor.
