Choreographing Music - Composing dance 3

The course will explore choreographic and musical ideas from 3 different 

1. Realtionship of sound and Movement: The possibilities of movement 
with text, the relationship between sound and movement. The use of the 
voice with the body. The text will be taken from Shakespeare.

2. Music and movement dynamics: We will explore dynamics in movement 
and  music,and how they influence each other.

3. Synchronicity: what does synchronised movement create? How does it 
effect the performers, the movement and the mood of the work.

We will explore these three areas through a series of questions:

  •  What stories can be told through the body?
  •  How do you tell stories through the body without words?
  •  In what way can words/sound/music impact and inform the movement?
