This class is for advanced dance improvisers who will collaborate with musicians in creating ensemble forms for the performance of improvisation. We will meet once a week with musicians and will also collaborate with Thorsten Dennerline’s Printmaking class to create a performance at the end of the term. Students will learn a Solo Practice and an Ensemble practice in improvisation techniques. Development of a movement vocabulary, pattern recognition, negotiation of roles, attention to phrasing and the arcs of spontaneous composition will all be included in the daily practices in class.
