Creating Participatory Events at the Intersection of Choreographic and Conflict Engagement Practices (APA2447.01)

Dana Caspersen

The course will involve students in the practice of integrating choreographic thinking and conflict engagement through practical application in the process of creating dynamic structures and motion strategies for a series of sketches for participatory event models, while increasing their understanding of possible cross-disciplinary applications of this work. The course will include rigorous study toward the development of effective conflict engagement skills at interpersonal, group, and structural levels, and an increased ability to recognize, make decisions regarding, and act within physical categories of action that shape participatory events. The physical research included in this course is action-based as opposed to specifically dance-based, allowing students to connect the work of choreographic thinking to many fields of practice, such as social justice, education, science, law, or public dialogue, as well as more frequently recognized fields of creative endeavor such as theater, film, or design.
